My Canvas (Working Title)
A Canadian female artist, Susie Matthias, demonstrates her ability to maneuver the world with limitations by being a mouth painter.
Most artists are aware of the struggles, obstacles and doubts that comes with chasing their dreams. How does one find that determination from within, and furthermore - one with a physical challenge?
One Painting at a Time, a character based, expository documentary, will follow Susie’s story and her own struggles as an artist and how to overcome them. The film will shine light on the stigma those with disabilities face, and how to adapt to one’s situation.
This documentary will take a look into the hearts of this character. Reflecting on Susie’s life experiences, she will exemplify the themes of determination and choice, proving that any artist, physical disability or not, can find strength.
