Straight from Docutah, the Southern Utah International Film Festival: Pieces of the Soul, a documentary by Spencer Sullivan introduces the viewer to the world of artist Matt Clark.

Matt was aiming at becoming a professional rodeo cowboy when he suffered a severe spinal cord injury. Still a teenager, he was advised to check into a rest home, with a life expectancy of four to five years. More than 30 years after his injury, he is now a well known artist in southern Utah where his work is easily recognised by its unique style.

Pieces of the Soul shows how Matt's art work symbolises his struggle to overcome oppositions and define his own life.

The screening will be followed by a talk by Lani Puriri, Docutah operations manager. Lani believes that there is strength in connecting to the community she calls home. For the past ten years Lani has worked in the Southern Utah broadcast media industry as a public relations and marketing manager and her experience has also been gained through the positions she has held in various community organisations.
