The Beaver Hall Group - an Alisa Siegel documentary
It took ten years of persuading, digging, searching and begging. But finally, the Beaver Hall Group is getting its due. Explosions of colour, astonishing portraits and a modernist take on the 1920's, set this group of artists on a dramatically different course from the Group of Seven. Not only that, half of them were women.

A few in the Beaver Hall Group became well known in the art world. But the group, and so many of its artists, disappeared from the public sphere. Two curators, Jacques Des Rochers and Brian Foss, decided it was time that all of these painters - men and women - got their due. They spent almost ten years making it happen.
Alisa Siegel's documentary is called "Who Gets to be Remembered." It was first broadcast in February, 2016.
