My video on artist friend and neighbor, "Beth Pewther: Living Art" was a selection at the Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema Festival last night. It was great to see so many videos by talented local filmmakers, as well as catch up with friends and relatives who attended;
"What do radishes, Wichita, Cosmic Christianity and a tiled house on Bronte Street have in common? Meet Beth Pewther, mixed media artist and longtime Bernal Heights resident. Combining interviews with stunning imagery, this short documentary explores Pewther’s life and artistic work while it also raises questions about women, art, spirituality and living an artful life."
