Our short documentary film on the NYC-based artist, Rosalyn Engelman, set for release June 2015, was screened at a private event to mark a new retrospective show on the artist's work. It was sponsored by the global investment-management and research firm, AllianceBernstein. The exclusive, one-day event featured a post-screening Q&A with Director, Paul Lewis, Cinematographer Robert Gregson and the artist, Rosalyn Engelman.
The film is an intimate look at an extraordinary, award-winning artist who overcame Guillian-Barre Syndrome to continue her commitment to art and painting.
Rosalyn Engelman: The Color of Memory explores the artist's work and vision over the course of two weekends a year apart, featuring an in-depth interview with Rosalyn, a verite look at the artist at work, and a celebration and unveiling of her commissioned painting for Frank Lloyd Wright's Blandes House owned by John and Marsha Shyer.
Subterracon is deeply grateful to AB for the opportunity to have shared this work publicly for the first time and for the warm and generous feedback from the audience.
