Art’s Therapy is a one-hour documentary film following Ghanaian-American artist, Arthur Bucknor, struggling to get back on his feet both literally and figuratively after the removal of an eight- inch spinal tumor renders him partially paralyzed. Unable to use the left side of his body – the once left-handed Arthur is devastated and spirals into a deep depression. Encouraged by a therapist to try painting with his right hand, Arthur reignites his passion for art.
