The Canvas 

[Run Time: 56 minutes]

Documentary - Feature

Director: Salvatore Garau

Country of Filming: Italy

Country of Origin: Italy

Language: Italian (English subtitles)

Synopsis: Art requires concentration, most often solitude. This condition is essential for the painter Salvatore Garau. Yet the artist decides to question himself by taking a large white canvas (2mx5m) and sharing the creation of the work together with the inmates in the high security prison of Massama, Sardinia. He does not intend to teach prisoners how to paint, but to share creative energy with those who are not used to freedom, let alone creative freedom. On the canvas the prisoners can unleash their imagination that leads to wonder, and wonder is power. Power is openness without fear. The documentary "The canvas" follows this challenge, the surprising discoveries, the beginning and the development of a project that shows the power of art and speech, especially in shady and sad places like prison.
