                                          *the path to discovery when working on a documentary

                                          Rebel Angel is a film about identity, love, dysfunctional families, despair, the redemptive power of art, and the long,

                                          relentless reach of mentorship.  View the trailer at

                                          Seven years in the making, Rebel Angel paints a portrait of the evanescent cultural figure Ross Woodman (1922-2014),

                                          Jungian author Marion Woodman, and their extraordinary marriage. Ross played a key role in the 'Regionalist' art scene

                                          in London, Ontario in the 1960s which gave us many of Canada's most significant artists from that period. Marion was first                                                              introduced to Jung’s thought by Ross before they were married in the late 1950s.
