Focus on Ability Film Festival : Tuross video goes international


Chris Campbell, a local artist from Tuross Head is unstoppable in his pursuits of the arts from painting, film and video Well known for his annual art exhibition Chris was left a C5/C6 quadriplegic after a diving accident in 1990 when he was 19 years old that left him with no feeling or movement from his chest down leaving him with partial movement of his arms and is unable to move his fingers or thumbs. Chris started painting 6 years ago after being confined to bed with a run of health problems which he still battles improving his skills by becoming self-taught with the aid of Youtube along with a lot of trial and error. More recently Chris has explored the world of video production and 2019 sees him entering his video "9 Hours" to the international Focus on Ability Film Festival which has received entries from 26 countries. All films are now online including Chris's and you can vote for your favourite until July 3rd "9 Hours" is retrospective re-enactment of a night Chris fell out of bed and spent 9 hours on the cement floor of his bedroom. Chris said of the film "After 30 years as a quadriplegic, I hope by sharing some of my experiences it might help someone in life. And if it helps just one person, then it’s done its job"
