Director Richard Kane writes:

I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan  – a 94 year old artist who skips and jumps in his heart like a child, yet is a spiritually deep creative genius and poet of 50 children’s books, maker of magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage.  Ashley lives on the remote Cranberry Islands, Maine and uses art to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war and racism, and explore the mysteries of faith. His life story and the art he makes from this wellspring of experience is an inspiration to people of all ages.
