Film: Imber’s Left Hand, UK Chandler Hospital
January 31, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The 18th annual One World Film Festival presents Richard Kane’s Imber’s Left Hand (2014) on Sunday, January 31 at 2 pm at UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital’s Pavilion A Auditorium.
“This inspiring documentary chronicles the life and career of renowned painter Jon Imber, who faced great adversity after being diagnosed with ALS. Director Richard Kane follows Imber as he remains determined to continue his work as an artist, despite his condition. His heroic resolve leads to the creation of more than 100 portraits in an incredible four month span. The film sensitively observes Jon, capturing him at his most courageous and humorous as the disease claims his body. Thanks in large part to the loving support of his wife, painter Jill Hoy, Imber learns to paint with his left hand, and eventually with both hands held together at his waist. Knowing what his fate holds, Jon Imber shows what it is to truly live and die through art.”
