This film is available for free from April 11 to August 4, 2024 as part of a collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) in conjunction with the exhibition Wanda Koop: WHO OWNS THE MOON.

Painter Wanda Koop shows us what we missed the first time, what remains hidden, and makes us question how and what we see. I paint it, and then I see it.” The visionary Canadian artist Wanda Koop is preparing massive new paintings of archetypal cities and familiar yet disquieting landscapes. Named by Time Magazine as one of Canada’s best artists, recipient of the Order of Canada, honorary doctorates, and prizes, Koop’s creative life is hectic. Taking a break from studio demands, she embarks on a journey by freighter boat. Sketches, photographs, and moments of observation soon lead to a new group of astonishing paintings.

These online film screenings are presented by the Festival international du film sur l’art and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The screenings have been made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
