Hands, Head + Heart

Backwoods visionary, self-taught outsider artist, Vancouver Island icon. George Sawchuk, now in his 80's, stays at home and works on his timber and found object sculptures. His gallery is the old growth forest at the back of his Fanny Bay property. This, my first film, is a day in the life of George as he muses about art, work, religion, sex and politics.
