7:00 PM Canvasman
Nickelodeon Cinemas | 1 Temple St., Portland
Director: Gary Robinov
Country: U.S | 2010 | Documentary
Duration: 90 min.
Canvasman, directed by Portland native, Gary Robinov, chronicles the dual lives of Rob Elowitch, art collector and owner of the prestigious Barridoff Galleries, who for the last forty years has also wrestled professionally under the mat name Robbie Ellis. The film is a portrait of a man who is less concerned with doing what is expected of him than he is with living a life fueled by passion. His journey is one that teaches us that even if they take us in unlikely directions, if we follow our hearts, we can live our lives uninhibited by age and stereotypes and find out who we really are.
