Roosevelt

11 min - USA Ron Stanford

This rowhouse artist has lived in the city his entire adulthood, but his art is rooted in a one room school in the South Carolina flatlands. Roosevelt expresses himself with discarded demolition materials that he finds on Philadelphia sidewalks. He has his own theory of art. This film was an exploration of an exceptional self-taught artist. The project is an attempt to let Roosevelt tell his own story, in his own style.
