"Pain Things" by Jon Red opens today at Indie Sine


60 mins / Digital

Color-blind: Frank struggles to finish his documentary on the painter
Benjie, whom he looks up to. He wants to become Benjie.

Love is blind: He is seduced by Julia, who lives with Benjie. But
Frank misses Jenny, who just left him.

Heart-wrenching. Mind-boggling. What is essential is visible.
