The Wonder and Amazement – Rita Briansky On Her Life in Art
Montreal artist Rita Briansky has had her paintings displayed in museums across Canada, the United States, Norway and France. Growing up in a small lumber town in Northern Ontario and then in Montreal, Rita was always a loner and non-conformist by nature. Now at 92 years old, while still painting, she imparts her ideas and talent as a teacher to seniors, helping them live more productive lives. Filmmakers Dov Okouneff and Janet Best (A New Life on the Land) share her life story and ideas as well as her beautiful, reflective works in this life-affirming piece of Canadiana.
