67 minute film. Directed by Marcia Connolly and Katherine Knight.
The structure of this film combines two distinctive artist portraits through a third shared narrative based on love and death. The film follows the creative process of Spring Hurlbut and Arnaud Maggs in their respective studios and joins them in their summer retreat in France where we witness their daily lives and their persistent search for source material in local flea markets. The film captures Magg’s final retrospective at the National Art Gallery of Canada in 2012 and follows Hurlbut as she creates ethereal film and photographic work using cremated ashes. Shot over the last year and half of Magg's life, the film ultimately is a poignant portrait of art, love and mortality and celebration of the creative sprit that continues to drive invention even as death approaches.
