What would you do if, in an instant, your body was rendered useless and you were left
with only your imagination and the ability to hold a paintbrush in your mouth? A short
film on the life of Asheville artist Marcus C. Thomas explores how creative gumption and
beautiful art saved a life transformed by such a tragedy.

At the age of 26, Marcus C. Thomas suffered a skiing accident that broke his neck and
left him paralyzed from the shoulders down.

The film is a short version of a DVD that complements and and chronicles the artist's 
25-year retrospective, Flight of the Mind: A Painter's Journey through Paralysis, which
was released late last year.  The book, composed of the narrative story of Marcus' life
and full-color images of his artwork, conveys a message of hope and inspiration for 
fellow artists, art lovers, those who suffer a disability, caregivers, and anyone struggling
to make sense of a world that is both heartbreaking and lovely.

Carolina Cinemas ( 1640 Hendersonville Road ) will hold a screening of the short film, 
Flight of the Mind, on Wednesday, July 24th at 8 pm in the Cinema Lounge.  Admission
is free.  The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the artist,
Marcus C. Thomas.  The author of the retrospecive, Leslee Johnson, will also give a short
reading.
