2012. (1 x 60 min.) Color, B/W: HD. English. A Dadaist, pioneering painter and filmmaker, radical provocateur and visionary educator, Hans Richter was a major force in redefining art in the twentieth century. Yet, 25 years after his death, Hans Richter remains misunderstood and undervalued for his contributions to creating a new social art that forever changed the act of self-expression.
2014. 63 minutes. Color: HD. English. In the summer of 2012, painter Jon Imber was diagnosed with a fatal degenerative disease, ALS. Imber’s Left Hand tells the story of this artist’s courageous and sometimes darkly humorous response to such a sentence. The film traces his adaptations, from switching from painting with his right hand to his left, and then to both hands as the condition progresses. Adversity only makes him more determined to paint, and paint he does: more than 100 portraits in a four-month span.
