Do you really understand the healing power of creativity?

The writer and producer of the film Guys Reading Poems certainly do as they explore how creativity helps one boy escape his metaphorical and literal box.

This boy is stuck in a puppet box and it is his creativity–his ability to paint, play with puppets, and his imagination overall–that allow him to get out of the box whole.

The film itself is a masterpiece, filmed in black and white and framed by poetry.

Be sure to watch Dr. Shelley Plumb’s interview with the writer and producer at the Palm Beach Film Festival as she asks questions about the power of creativity and the boxes we can all escape from in our lives.
