Director Ethan Minsker will give an introduction before the screening and take a Q&A after
Man in Camo is an explosive commentary on the life and times of filmmaker and artist Ethan Minsker, a Washington D.C. native. Growing up on the turbulent streets in D.C. in the 1980s was violent and uneasy, but Minsker found solace in his home, making films and growing his own artistic credibility.
Navigating a diagnosis of dyslexia, the abrasiveness of the punk scene, and political parents, Minsker takes us on a journey through the mind of a man who has leapt over hurdles in order to make art that matters. He displays his thought process from making creative films to fanzines and aggressively reiterates why a creative life is important to society and to life itself. The film is complete with commentary from Minsker, as well as those close to him, including his mother and personal friends. Now a father, Minsker looks back on the times that shaped the man he is today.
Man in Camo explores the intricacies of what it means to be a modern artist, and why art is still so important to the world at large. Minsker’s overarching message is more than just skin deep: art is all around us, but we must be militant to become a part of it. And so, clad in camo, the artist hides in plain sight, silently growing and making your world that much more colorful.
