Many young men and women living in neighborhoods across America suffer the absence of a path or a toolkit for survival. Sometimes that toolkit is there, but they just need a guide or an angel to show it to them. In the “Art of Life” the two lead characters Chay and Cheyanne, are looking for a way out of the suffocating pain and misery of their surroundings, but they need a plan. As both develop their artistic skills, their future prospects grow brighter, even if their present environment maintains its darkness. Will they be able to escape to the light? In this story, which blends the magic of cinema, animation, sketches, paintings and music, we learn that art is all around us, and realizing this could help make survival more vividly apparent to those trapped in the dark.
This unique organic and artistic film features scenes shot inside a County Jail, in the middle of the marches during the G20 Summit, and on site during the production of several MLK Mural Projects around the world. “Art of Life” also features several original pieces by MLK Mural artists woven into scenes as animation.
