A Revolution on Canvas - Opens Today - Friday, December 1st Cinema Village


"A smart intersection of the political, personal, and artistic, revealing how all three can be intertwined in a way that makes them impossible to extricate."

"The filmmaking here is empathetic and inspiring."

"Embedded in this fascinating family drama is something of an international thriller."

"The art seen in A Revolution on Canvas is breathtaking in its concept and execution, a blend of pop art like Nodjoumi saw in the counter-culture movement of the ‘60s in New York and the images of his culture. A greater appreciation of Nodjoumi as an artist will surely emerge from this project."
