Winds of Heaven: Emily Carr, Carvers and the Spirits of the Forest is a ninety-minute filmic journey into the deep brooding mystery and inner beauty of Emily Carr’s paintings—a lyrical, luminescent and entertaining impression of the life of Carr and her connection to the First Nations people of the Northwest Coast of British Columbia. Winner of the Best Documentary Photography Award of the Canadian Cinematographers Society, (April 2011) the 90-minute work has been praised for being “visually sumptuous” by The Globe and Mail (January 2011) and described as “a beautiful film whose cinematography flows like acrylic paint across canvas” by The Toronto Star (January 2011). The film is directed by Michael Ostroff, an instructor in the School of Journalism and Communications at Carleton University, the original score was written by Edmund Eagan, BMus/82.
This anniversary event is part of Alumni Week 2011, May 10-14, an annual celebration of the outstanding achievements, lifelong connections and exceptional ideas of Carleton University alumni. For more information and a full list of events, visit carleton.ca/alumni.
