About the Artist

Jenny Anderson (Lake Forest Park) received a 2004 GAP to put toward the purchase of supplies related to the re-location of a current work-in-progress. The film, now a year and a half in the making, documents the life of a 26 year-old paraplegic and offers a “visceral glimpse into his life.” The film’s subject has recently received an offer to travel to Burkina Faso at the end of this year, which will provide the film’s creator the opportunity to “take this collaborative project in an unplanned direction, from the everyday to the extraordinary.” The artist will travel along this journey to Burkina Faso and use funds to appropriately convert equipment beforehand in preparation for several days of shooting in a village with no electricity.
