a midwestern palette: angela venarchik

angela venarchik is a ceramic artist living on lake michigan in chicago. her work is minimal and neat, placing an emphasis on form and function rather than image or decoration. mainly inspired by the landscape of the prairie state and the great lakes, the wide-open spaces of the plains are expressed through clean and minimal design. she works in a color palette that reflects golden native grasses, stormy summer skies, snow-covered urban landscapes and the saturated blues of lake michigan. each piece carries a deep, clear sense of place. angela's work is a celebration of design, craftsmanship & midwestern life. we spent two days with angela, documenting her processes and bringing those back to the places in which the work was inspired.

Greg Runions - Suite Vincent

20 years ago, composer and percussionist Greg Runions put a band together to record a series of tunes inspired by the legendary Kenny Wheeler coming to town for a one-off concert where he would perform with Greg's big band. At the time they only managed to get a demo recording of the show, so 20 years later the band came back together in the studio to lay down the compositions as a complete recording featuring some of Canada's top players in the jazz scene.

"I see past my disability".

This is a film about an inspirational young man. Johnny Botton has faced challenges that many could not even contemplate. His journey through foster care, living with cerebral palsy and overcoming the prejudices that come with these, have made Johnny a role model and example to many. Johnny used to visit our family on respite for holidays. It was always obvious that his upbeat, compassionate and positive outlook on life was going to guide serve him well. My own children and foster children regard Johnny as a surrogate brother, and it was inevitable that I would do a film about Johnny at some point.
