WATERWALKER is a documentary feature celebrating the Ontario wilderness. The film follows filmmaker/artist Bill Mason's journey by canoe, commencing in the vast reaches of Lake Superior, then exploring winding and sometimes tortuous river waters to the meadowlands of the river=s source. Along the route, Mason paints in oils the various scenes that capture his attention, and, as he does so, muses about his love of the canoe, his paintings and his own sense of the land. The film combines breathtaking visuals and some of the most exciting whitewater footage ever filmed with a powerful and compelling musical score by one of Canada's most renowned musicians, Bruce Cockburn.
