Shown with On Beauty.Jon Imber’s Left Hand traces this artist’s life and adaptations due to ALS, switching from painting with his right hand to his left, then to both as the degenerative condition worsens. Adversity only makes him more determined: and he creates more than 100 portraits in three month. The film first encounters Imber in his studio with his partner analyzing his self-portrait and talking about the terror to come. The painting becomes an unsettling metaphor of his psychological journey, living into his dying through his art.Dir. Richard Kane (63 min, USA, 2014, Documentary) ON BEAUTY:Photographer Rick Guidotti left the fashion world along with its restrictive parameters of the industry’s standard of beauty and re-focused his lens on those too often relegated to the shadows.
