Plein Air Painters - Local Color - the movie

This info came in awhile ago but, the timing put it in unanswered email for me.
I did look at the trailer and the movie is 'moving' - artist or not.

I hope to be able to see the entire movie - screening now just in AZ.

New Movie "Local Color"

George Gallo, writer, director and fellow painter invites you to attend a free screening of his new film, LOCAL COLOR. To get free tickets, pick them up at Scottsdale Artists' School or visit the website at:

LOCAL COLOR is about a successful artist who looks back with loving memories on the summer of his defining year, 1974. A talented, but troubled eighteen-year old art student befriends an elderly alcoholic genius painter who has turned his back on not only art, but life. The two form what appears to be at first a tenuous relationship. The kid wants to learn all the secrets the master has locked away inside his head and heart. Time has not been kind to the old master. His life appears pointless to him until the kid rekindles his interest in his work and ultimately gives him the will to live. Together, they give one another a priceless gift. The kid learns to see the world through the master's eyes. And the master learns to see life through the eyes of innocence again. LOCAL COLOR is based on director George Gallo's real life experience.
World-renowned painter, Richard Schmid says, "Without a doubt, the strength of the insights in the film are due to the fact that George Gallo, besides writing and directing LOCAL COLOR, is an accomplished painter in his own right."
Theater owner Dan Harkins personally selected the film to open at Harkins Camelview in Scottsdale.
Additionally, George will be in attendance at the screening to host a special post Q&A with the audience.
Our goal is to get this film out to those who will appreciate the film's stunning artistic images and George's message about mentorship in the artistic community.
Currently the following dates (see below) are available to attend a free screening, all screenings will take place at Harkins Camelview 5 (located across from Scottsdale Fashion Square) and would love to have you join us.
