Painter and documentary film maker Nathan Florence joins me to discuss ‘Bright Spark: The Reconciliation of Trevor Southey’
For eleven years, artist Nathan Florence documented Trevor Southey’s life with his heart and with his lens in order to tell an unfolding story that ended in Trevor’s death in 2015.
It’s an unusual documentary, but nonetheless affecting because like a painting it constantly unfolds. The film is a soft place among the polarized voices of LDS folk in and out of the church because it has no agenda beyond the story of art as an expression of the deepest musings of humanity; how it’s made; at what cost; whose it for? But most importantly, how does it change lives?
