ReelAbilities Day 4: Spotlight on the Arts presents|
THAT WHICH IS POSSIBLE
Michael Gitlin | 2015 | USA | 84 Min | Documentary
A community of painters, sculptors, musicians, and writers create work at the Living Museum, an art space on the grounds of a large state-run psychiatric facility in Queens. Shot over the course of two years and structured across the arc of a day, the film observes with an intimate lens and unspools like a musical, both bracing and tender. It explores the liberation and healing that creativity can offer those drawn together by shared struggle. It points to a more humane and holistic approach to mental illness, and to the joy of transforming society itself.
ReelAbilities strives for inclusion of all people. Individuals needing accommodations to participate should contact Anton Merbaum, firstname.lastname@example.org by September 8. (ASL Interpretation, Live Audio Description.) All films are captioned or subtitled and all venues are wheelchair accessible.
