MC Richards: The Fire Within

In the film, we witness M.C. Richards engaging in contemplative questioning regarding the nature of art, imagination, wholeness, community, and our place in the cosmos. She inspires us to live creatively, to believe in ourselves, to experience the sensuality of existence. This is a film not just about M.C. It’s about all of our quests to become authentic creators of art and community.
