SHOULDER THE LION
Pushing boundaries of the film medium, this visually-rich film essay explores meaning of ages, fragility of memories and desire for relevance in today's world. Enter the worlds of three artists who lost the very sense defining their art. A blind photographer questions the power of images in today's visually saturated culture. Forced to give up his dream of playing music due to his advancing hearing loss, a musician must reinvent his future. A painter who lost half her brain in a boxing match searches for her place in life unsure of what she should be to the world. The film attempts to ask what it takes for someone to keep on going in times of uncertainty, and uses unique form to produce the answers.
