An audience favorite at the 2015 Mill Valley Film Festival, this joy-filled portrait of Edythe Boone captures the Berkeley-based muralist as she celebrates her 75th birthday and oversees community and student projects in Oakland and San Francisco. For decades this indefatigable artist and activist has introduced underserved youth and seniors to the transformative power of art. Her sincere belief in the importance of art in social-justice work was put to the test when her nephew Eric Garner died in police custody. This tragedy inspired powerful questions that many artists and activists face: Can building multicultural bridges through art bring about positive change? Editor: Maureen Gosling. Executive Producer: Jed Riffe. Producer/Director: Marlene “Mo” Morris. (US 2015) Film 60 min. plus discussion.
