Sunday 30, June 7:00p – post-screening Q&A w/ dir. Alex Rappoport

79 years old and overlooked since the 1970s, abstract painter Peter Bradley reflects on life and shares his artistic process on the cusp of his rediscovery. Told over the course of changing seasons against the backdrop of his shipping container art studio, Bradley waxes poetic in a series of tender, revealing and surprising monologues. The effect is a moving portrait of an artist who has accomplished his life in dedicated fashion, with wit, tendersess, and strength.
