Art of Life Film To Be Screened at Big Night in Little Haiti Friday, December 20, 2013
Friday December 20th 2013, 10:00PM â€“ 12:00AM, Moving the Lives of Kids Art Center (MLK Mural) is pleased to present the â€œArt of Lifeâ€ as part of Rhythm Foundation and Little Haiti Cultural Center Big Night in Little Haiti. The film will be shown at the Little Haiti Cultural Center Theater located at 212 NE 59th Terrace, Miami, FL 33137.
The feature length film is the directorial debut of famed mural artist, and Executive Director of MLK Mural, Kyle Holbrook. The film screening will be followed by a special performance by Woffgang playing his original track from the score of the movie.
Many young men and women living in hoods 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 them to it. In the â€œArt of Lifeâ€ 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 darkness. Well 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.
Artist Kyle Holbrook directed and costarred in the film playing a magical and mythical character named â€œArt.â€ His character blurs the line of reality and is the manifestation of their inspiration, and a guide to their redemption for both lead characters.
â€œArt of Lifeâ€ features original music by Pittsburgh native Mac Miller. The Pittsburgh musician only held one job in his life prior to becoming the famed musician and reality show star that he is today, working with MLK Mural. He helped write original music for the film, and worked behind the camera filming sections of the film.
Also costarring in the film is artist and poet Vanessa German, who plays a several roles in the film serving as a muse and inspiration for the characters.
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. â€œArt of Lifeâ€ also features several original pieces by MLK Mural artists woven into scenes as animation.
Audiences will be blown away by the unique and organic process of writing and directing, and will be wowed by this artfully crafted film. There will be a special musical performance following the film by Woffgang presenting an original track from the soundtrack of the film. Art world, immerse yourself within it. www.artoflifethemovie.com
