Drawing, painting, documentary, animation, and virtual reality blend together in this colorful mix of films about putting vision to page (or screen, or sculpture). The prolific and visceral activist pencil drawings of Laurie Lipton, largely ignored by the art world, receive their due in “Love Bites;” director Lisanne Skyler explores the definition of art by following the trail of her family’s Andy Warhol piece over 40 years in “Brillo Box (3¢ off);” a renowned Disney animator demonstrates the new world of virtual reality drawing in “Step into the Page;” and in “MissMe: The Artful Vandal,” a successful advertising art director quits to become an anonymous underground street artist, working in opposition to the world in which she once lived.

Description

No one on the planet has drawn more than Laurie Lipton. With millions of tiny strokes of her humble pencil, Laurie’s haunted images seek answers to the most uncomfortable themes in our culture. But what compels her to live a life of isolation drawing is neither black nor white.
