Community Arts Film Series in partnership with Northwind Arts Center
Dir. Glenn Hosten / USA / 2014 / 83 min.
This poignant documentary chronicles the long and colorful life of Lily Yeh, an artist who has committed herself to creating community-based art projects in some of the world’s most trouble areas. With projects in North Philly to Kenya and Rawanda, Yeh teaches survivors of war and calamity to make murals and build sculptures from their own experience, regaining in the process a sense of purpose and a belief that life can be about creation as well as destruction. “There is much healing in THE BAREFOOT ARTIST.” –The New York Times
