Director Scott Cronan's Forgiveness is a Weapon named BEST SHORT FILM at the Festival of World Cinema in London.

(See more about the director's trip overseas in our blog.)

Forgiveness is a Weapon is an intimate, artistic portrayal of one man's psyche as he is propelled forward by life toward his death.

Spanning eight vignettes that tell the story of two lovers torn apart by war and literally sewn together, the 35 minute art film is an expression of the relationships between love and war, beauty and pain, and ultimately the fear and vulnerability that go along with each.

Set to the music of LA's orchestral indie rock band, Archer Black, Forgiveness is a Weapon is a dark and beautiful film that touches the center of each of us. Shot over the course of a year, director Scott Cronan collaborated with many of LA's extremely talented independent artists from composer Dustin Morgan, founder of Archer Black, and aerialists Womack and Bowman and Elizabeth Newton to fine artist David Lucien, who's had a rare blood disease since childhood and paints with his own blood, to our leads, Luke Barnett and Jennifer Albrent, and contortionist Emilie Livingston among many other talented dancers, painters, and musicians.
Forgiveness is a Weapon pushes the boundaries of cinematic storytelling through combining hauntingly beautiful imagery and a unique and powerful score that stay with the audience long after leaving the theater.

The Encourage Creativity videos are part of a suite of arts education advocacy tools - designed to help you inform your community, inspire your friends, and impact the world. These videos tell the real story behind the numbers and data. Let your audience hear directly from students whose lives have been transformed by the arts.

We were proud to team with Washington D.C. based non-profit Amercians for the Arts and give life to the stories of the arts making a difference in the lives of children every day. 

We approached this project with the same passion and direction as we do will all of our work, coming from truth and emotion first and using this powerful art form to share that authentic space with the audience.

Help spread these stories and take action to ensure all children across the country have access to the arts in their education. It is vital to our future and the future of each individual child as they grow into young adults. Encourage creativity. Teach the Arts.
