Description

Directed by Rosa Ruth Boesten

A deft and intimate character study, Boesten trains her camera on George Anthony Morton, an inmate in federal prison for a decade on drug dealing charges, and a classical painter who nurtures his craft during lock-up. Since his release, he is doing everything he can to defy society’s unlevel playing field and tackle the white-dominant art world. He returns home to Kansas City and paints family members as catharsis and reflection. By painting these portraits, can George heal himself and create a better outcome for the next generation? Grand Jury Award Winner, 2022 SXSW Film Festival.
