UNAFF for Seniors: A Documentary Film Series

Midpeninsula Chapter

Monday, June 3, 2013
Location: Palo Alto, Calif.

Warm, revealing and often surprisingly funny portrait of an unlikely artist shows us that true talent will always refuse to be stifled, and you do not need an education to channel your emotions into art.

Akram is an illiterate, fifty-year-old Iranian woman who became a painter unexpectedly when her young grandson asked her to work on a drawing. That simple moment tapped into an explosion of powerful, primitive and colorful paintings, which she hid from disapproving eyes. When invited to exhibit in Paris, she is at the mercy of her conservative husband: Will he let her go showcase her raw talent or give in to his sense of tradition and keep her home?
