June 20 Filmmakers Workshop- Rough Cut Screening of "LUCKEY"
On June 20th, Filmmakers Workshop will present a rough cut screening of “LUCKEY", a documentary being produced by Laura Longsworth.
LUCKEY is a one-hour documentary about a paralyzed sculptor. In September 2005, as he was designing a three-story climbable sculpture for the Boston Children’s Museum, Tom Luckey fell through a window and damaged his fourth vertebra. The film begins a year after Tom’s accident. He has come through rehabilitation and is off his ventilator, but he is a quadriplegic and can move only his head. Determined to finish his sculpture, Tom forms a turbulent alliance with his son Spencer, an architect. They are best friends, but fierce competitors. The film follows the two men over nine months as they build Tom’s vision of an enormous work of public art that comes to life when children climb it. The film explores the raw and turbulent relationship between a father and son who fuel one another’s artistic ambition.
The workshop will be held at the Bernard Toale Gallery in Bostons South End. YOU MUST HAVE A CONFIRMED RSVP from Susi@documentaries.org in order to attend. The event is free.
