HOW TO MAKE A PEARL

Expected to Attend: Director Jason Hanasik; executive producer Minette Nelson

Some people seem to live in a figurative darkness. Due to a medical condition, John Kapellas exists in literal darkness. For ten years he has been confined to his apartment suffering from photosensitivity. Both a visual artist and a musician, John’s creativity is the engine propelling him through a seemingly endless night.

In How to Make a Pearl,  Jason Hanasik takes the audience into a unique world of contemplation, isolation and an understanding of John’s contentment. Via creative filmmaking and the use of John’s own home videos, audiences enter two vastly contrasting worlds of one man’s life.
