The Landscape Within
First screened in September 2016
Director: Andrea Capranico. Documentary about a Filipino body-painter, photographer, and conceptual artist Eric Nui Cabales, whose unique practice offers a channel for unresolved grief.

Twitter Capsule: The tableaus themselves are ravishing; the painful and enigmatic stories behind them make them only more so.

VOR:   There is an element here of simply letting the camera linger on transfixing spectacles, but there's a bit more method to how the film draws out its subject.
