Into the Light - screening and artist talk
Mary Irwin Theatre at the Rotary Centre for the Arts
421 Cawston Avenue
Into the Light is a short documentary that follows Kelowna's Michelle Behr (Okanagan Photography), who uses photography to support local men in their challenges with mental health. By focusing on men’s resilience, Michelle finds inspiration to overcome her own trauma. Michelle's work can be seen in the Atrium and Atrium Display Cases at the Rotary Centre for the Arts throughout September and October 2020. This screening is an extension of her work and will be followed by an artist talk featuring Michelle and some of her photography subjects - men overcoming their mental health challenges. Tickets to the event are free, with donations gratefully accepted and going directly to the artist.
