A document of the last year in the life of the valiant, renowned Somerville-based artist. Jon Imber, who suffers from ALS, reinvents his style and continues making dark jokes – Jewish humor! – even as his body is failing him. A haunting filmic adieu to a painter who cared to the end about his wife, accomplished artist Jill Hoy, family, friends, and artistic legacy.
Preceded by I Think This is the Closest to How the Footage Looked.
In this potent short about grief and memory, two Israeli filmmakers strive to replace a lost videotape in which a poor husband had recorded his dying wife. Winner of Special Jury Award at Sundance.
In person director Richard Kane, film subjets Jill Hoy (Jon Imber’s spouse) and Ron Hoffman (founder of Compassionate Care ALS)
