A Painter

We follow a painter, a successful artist living alone and isolated. Driven only by his work, he finds himself lost when he's forced to deal with his unannounced son and other outsiders that stand in the way of his work and get him out of balance.


The film is about a man in conflict with himself, life, art and his family. I want to show a
character within by explaining the world outside and around him. To use the event,
character, situation and scenery to create the film through the way of seeing and hearing.
Not only by the written narrative form.
Most of all, I would like it to be a helpless statement. Not something I deliberately set out
to say, but something I cannot avoid saying.
