On Friday, October 19, Workman Arts and St. Anne's Church present the Toronto premiere of the feature-length documentary William Kurelek's The Maze. Brothers Nick and Zack Young produced, restored and reimagined their father's unseen 1969 film about renowned Canadian artist, William Kurelek to bring this inspiring documentary to life. This screening launches the 20th Anniversary of Rendezvous with Madness and is held in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary celebration of the founding of St Anne's Church. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion exploring issues of art, mental health, and faith.
To date confirmed as panel participants in the discussion on faith and mental health are: Dr. Kwame McKenzie, Rev. Gary van der Meer, visual artist Lisa Walter, filmmaker Nick Young, and William's son Stephen Kurelek.
NOTE: We'll also see Mirabilia, an exhibition of contemporary artworks scattered in surprising places about the Church, including an inflatable sculpture by Max Streicher.
