Screening Jon Imber’s Left Hand

March 26, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| $8
Jon Imber

Join us for the world premiere of the documentary, Jon Imber’s Left Hand

This film is being shown as part of this year’s Maine Jewish Film Festival, of which Salt is proud to be a satellite location for screenings.

A document of this artist’s courageous and sometimes darkly humorous response to a death
sentence, a diagnosis of ALS. The film traces his life, his career and his adaptations, switching
from painting with his right hand to his left, and then to both hands held at his waist as the
degenerative condition progresses. Adversity only makes him more determined to paint, and
paint he does: more than 100 portraits in a four-month span.

 World Premiere

Sunday, 3/23 3:30pm – Portland Museum of Art
Wednesday, 3/26 6:00pm – Salt

Director Richard Kane present for q&a following both screenings
