Gravity is My Enemy

USA, 1977 (MIFF 1978)

Director: John Joseph

Mark Hicks fell from a tree at twelve, leaving him only his face and neck muscles in working order. He became a superior student and developed into an artist.

The film tells about Mark's reactions to his disability, his relationship with his family and fellow students, and shows a number of his paintings.
