ReelAbilities Film Festival: Cleveland's Kickoff with Street Art


Sat Sep 24 2022 at 01:00 pm to 02:30 pm


Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland moCa | Cleveland, OH

With a long career promoting street art, music and film as well as pioneering online marketing through social media, Marc Schiller was well regarded as a communications expert. But in 2015, he suffered a stroke on both sides of his brain, leaving him with a language impairment known as aphasia and with some cognitive deficits. From day one in the intensive care unit, his family and then Marc himself, have been documenting his arduous recovery. No Bone: Scars of Survival is the culmination of Marc’s own chronicles of his battle towards recovery, as well as interviews with close friends, family, and colleagues. Despite Marc’s limited language abilities, he’s been able to work with an editor for the past year by giving directions via an application on a tablet. This documentary is a self-portrait of a man whose words have forsaken him, forcing him to adapt his life and find new ways of communicating.
