Winds Of Heaven: Emily Carr, Carvers & The Spirits Of The Forest
Directed by Michael Ostroff
White Pine Pictures, 2011
Winds of Heaven 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. Michael Ostroff’s
direction of John Walker’s award-winning camera and Edmund Eagan’s
intimate music brings a sense of movement, grace and energy to the film.
Diane D’Aquila’s layered and textured read presents a portrait of a living,
breathing, tough, vulnerable, smart and ultimately sympathetic Emily Carr
as has never before been brought to the screen.
