I Know A Man...Ashley Bryan
In honor of World Puppetry Day, Mayo Street Arts presents a film screening with introduction by filmmaker Richard Kane and artist Rich Entel.

Saturday, March 24 at 7:30pm
I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan (2016, 73 min.)
Filmed by Richard Kane and Robert Shetterly

This documentary explores the life of the 93-year-old creative wonder who skips and jumps in his heart like a child. Ashley served in a World War II all-Black battalion and experienced the racism of a separatist Army and the carnage of D-Day. As a result he has dedicated his life to creating beauty and joy, spreading love and awe through his art. A poet and illustrator of over 50 children's books, he makes magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage. Ashley lives on the remote Cranberry Islands here in Maine and has been using art his entire life to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war and racism, explore the mysteries of faith, and create loving community. His life story and the art he makes from this wellspring of experience is an inspiration to people of all ages.
