Brush with Life: The Art of Being Edward Biberman

USA – 2007 – 85 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN ENGLISH
A FILM BY HOWARD BIBERMAN

BRUSH WITH LIFE: THE ART OF BEING EDWARD BIBERMAN brings alive a remarkable artist’s passionate journey through a turbulent century. Both epic and surprisingly intimate, the film presents a classic American immigrant saga, an inspiring search for artistic independence, and a great romance. Along the way, Biberman's growing commitment to social justice and struggle against McCarthy-era repression (his brother, director Herbert Biberman, went to prison as one of The Hollywood Ten) combine with his efforts to create both a loving family life and a groundbreaking body of work.
