The Beauty of Damage

KODAK Award for Best Ohio Short Film (2010) – 34th Annual Cleveland International Film Festival

“Filled with story-telling intelligence, sensitive handling of visual images, lyric music, dramatic pace, the interplay of light and dark, and curious suspense. We’re amazed and enthralled by what you’ve created.”

– Henry Adams, Art Historian, Author, Curator.


Objective: Profile of the artist.

Strategy: Collaborate with art historian, Henry Adams and gasp as he quotes the German poet, Rilke: “Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror.” Make the film as dark, alluring and curiously compassionate as Pekoc’s art.
