Storyline

Battling his fears of inadequacy, and inability to survive the "real" world, Luis Molina, a young urban artist struggles with his addiction to crack cocaine. Questioning his capabilities, his way of life, even his very existence, he fights to hang on to his world. The visions, that explode in his mind, find their way on to the page in drawings and words, as he reaches for salvation. A final call to his brother as he flickers between reality and surreality catapults him to a place of peace when he calls upon his inner strength to guide him. The light of understanding comes with the knowledge that we all have choices...If we're lucky, the most important ones we make won't come too late. Written by K. Criswell

Life's Blood
12 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this film to be a moving and spiritual portrayal of a young Native American artist's struggle with addiction and finding himself. The ending provides a hopeful message for a brighter future as the young man ventures toward his culture and history rather than continuing to run away from it through addiction. The lead actor brings the right amount of self-loathing, emotion, and youthful resilience to the role. The original artwork shown throughout the film is effective in emphasizing the artist's internal wrestlings in a tangible, visual way, adding to the poignancy of the film. Artistic, spiritual, and moving. Definitely a short film worth seeing!
