The French painter Jean Marc Calvet recounts his incredible life story as a former Cannes bodyguard who abandoned his family, robbed a Miami mobster, hid out in Central America and overcame addictions by teaching himself how to paint at age 38. That was seven years ago. Now his intricate paintings sell for five figures, but he remains desperate to reconcile with the son he left behind. This film wowed audiences at DOC NYC and the Miami International Film Festival. We’re pleased to bring it back. In conjunction with this STF screening, Jean Marc Calvet will have a solo exhibition in NYC at the Monkdogz Urban Art Gallery.
