Lost inside the art of memory.

SPOT ON THE WALL tells the story of one family’s search for expression and empathy inside a museum. Paul Hunter, a talented photographer, is about to have an exhibition of his work at the museum – but when his artwork focuses on his mother’s recent lost battle with cancer, his family finds out how difficult it can be to face your pain and your past. With allusions to Greek mythology and a contemporary score, SPOT ON THE WALL reminds us to delve into the ugly truth and look for the beauty.  

Running Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, plus one intermission.
