A BEHOLDEN PURPOSE (Short Film): Brennan Stasiewicz
Artists must be energized by the emergence of women at the forefront of powerful commercial and non-commercial messages. Having recently had a daughter, Brennan wanted to contribute to this momentum in celebration of her birth. This is a story about the inspirational empowerment that women can give to not only other women, but to all of us, and especially men. It’s also a story of the magic that comes with finding purpose. And in meeting Brad Kunkle, a celebrated Realist painter based in New York City, Brennan found another male artist with the common desire.
This quote by Tom Robbins became the conceptual foundation of the film: "...the mission of the artist in an overtechnologized, overmasculinized society [is] to call the old magic back to life."
