Here is something you can do on Friday, the 18th. – Lil
IMBER’S LEFT HAND
The movie documents an artist’s courageous and sometimes darkly humorous response to a fatal illness. The film traces his life, his career, and his adaptations, switching from painting from his right hand to his left, and then to both hands held at his waist as the degenerative condition progresses.

Adversity only makes him more determined to paint, and paint he does: more than 100 portraits in a four-month span! We first encounter Imber in his studio for the first time painting with his left hand while he and his partner, painter Jill Hoy, analyze Jon’s self-portrait and talk about the anxiety to come. The painting becomes an unsettling metaphor of his psychological journey through his art.
Rev. Kitsy Winthrop will lead the discussion following the showing, and we’ll all share popcorn and refreshments!
