The story of acclaimed artist Beverly McIver and her promise to take her mentally disabled sister Renee when their mother dies - a promise that comes due just as Beverly's career is taking off. The same themes that fuel the artist's work - race, class, family, disability - propel this cinematic portrait. The film is by Academy Award nominees Jeanne Jordan and Steven Ascher.
Beverly McIver grew up in Greensboro and is a Professor of Art at North Carolina Central University. Her expressionistic paintings welcome viewers into her personal life and probe the issue of identity. Her solo exhibition Reflections: Portraits by Beverly McIver is on view October 20, 2012 - January 6, 2013 at Mint Museum Uptown.
