Film Inquiry’s Review of Art of Courage

“We do not often know how to behave in the face of terror and fear – but what we can learn from Art of Courage is that we can use our creativity to show defiance and strength.”


Film Trailer

Film directed by Veronica Duport Deliz and Kellee Marlow

Two internationally renowned artists prepare their canvas for an aerial art exhibition during the International Climate Summit in Paris 2015. As the momentum builds for their aerial art event, the artists find themselves in the midst of an unexpected, large-scale terrorist attack in Paris that shuts down the entire city. Paris is under a state of emergency and no large gatherings in public places are allowed. These two artists are now challenged to realize their vision as well as their collaboration with many who are there to support the International Climate Summit. They attempt to navigate through the paralysis of the city and government. In their quest, they ask themselves what are they willing to risk in their attempt to realize their vision. Through this journey, their original vision morphs into what really needs to be expressed by those who are in Paris at that moment in time. It is further enhanced by the participation of indigenous who becomes the heart beat of the art.
