"Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize."
The arts are what brings humans together, and Cinequest is proud to present this unique gathering of stories of humans and the works they create. Mingling true life with fiction, abstract with concrete, and the famous with the lesser-known, we see worlds created and defined by both artists and their works. Films examine the impact of individuals on communities, and tradition on output, while the narratives examine everything from the realization of the truth of being an artist, to the rejection of one’s calling. These 11 films from around the world examine both the truth in beauty, and the abhorrent displeasure in examining the greater truth.
