What do you do when you want to learn how to paint? You start drawing Fidel Castro. As artist Bryan Helfrich shared his portraits on Instagram and announced an upcoming art show called Questionable World Leaders, I knew I wanted to document this somehow. So, he sent me his show’s manifesto and I turned it into a script. With a little help from some crazy lighting, archival audio sources and dramatic, this video was shaped into a short promo for the show at Angst Gallery in Vancouver, WA opening October 6, 2017. There is some adult language, but what can you expect from a show called Questionable World Leaders?
