In ancient Greece, the Muses were goddesses who inspired artistic creation. Today women are more likely to be the artists themselves. But where are they turning for inspiration? What are the origins of their locations, stories and characters? We will talk to several remarkable filmmakers about whom they draw upon for encouragement, mentorship and creative inspiration. You might be surprised by the age, gender and even familial relationships of their muses. You may even want to challenge them on their choices. Join New Brunswick broadcaster and documentary filmmaker, Christine McLean, as she reveals the secret sources of creativity of women working in contemporary Canadian film.
