A document of artist Jon Imber's courageous and sometimes darkly humorous response to a death sentence – a diagnosis of ALS. 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 – Imber paints more than 100 portraits in a four-month span. A panel discussion will take place prior to the screening.
