“Shoulder the lion” is a film that crosses the boundaries of the traditional language of film. The result is a visually rich film essay touching upon the problems such as the meaning of images, of the evanescence of our memories, and the need that we all have to understand the modern world. The film’s creators take us into the fascinating world of three artists: a photographer, a musician, and a painter, who have lost the sense enabling them to create their art. The picture poses weighty questions concerning the role of art in modern, uncertain times. The film has successfully been shown at many international festivals, where it was awarded as the best documentary (Hot Springs, Salem Film Fest, Trenton Film Festival). Before the screening, however, the viewer needs to reject the classic style of film perception.
