This inspiring and playful "mapping" of 23 British Columbia artists contemplates their work as it moves around the province-from Vancouver, Surrey, New Westminster, Smithers, Whistler, Cranbrook, Victoria, Nelson, Kamloops, Gambier Island and Tofino. A stunning cross- section of media is represented: painting, drawing, carving, design, glass blowing, media arts, choreography and dance. The stature of artists is equally diverse-from those known more at a provincial level to others such as Stan Douglas and Crystal Pite, who have international stature with their work.

With 23 short and potent portraits of the artists and their work, director Brian Johnson illuminates their approach and reflects the presence of nature, isolation, community and social climate in which they work. It's a unique approach that brings the viewer closer to understanding a diverse group of artists and their work.
