About the Film The Art Of Following the death of his 35-year-old brother and faced with the emotional toll of grief, an artist delves into a year-long project to paint every day through intuitive abstract painting as a way to process grief and share his process with others. Along the way, this opens the doors to new conversations, ultimately urging the question: why isn't grief addressed better in Western culture? As a culmination to this year of painting, the 365 paintings are assembled into a final massive 10 ft x 20 ft image to represent a year of grief and further spur conversation over the subject.

REVIEWS

"The Art of Grieving" by Preston Zeller is incredibly inspiring on the emotional healing benefits of art. Zeller shared his journey of grieving and he also shared some of the research on how art has been connected with processing grief. I felt the final result of his artwork also paid a beautiful tribute to his brother. I'm healing my inner child and this documentary inspired me to continue healing with art.

Absolutely amazing!! Really opened my eyes to how all of us deal with grief and ways to express those feelings we tend to hide. All around a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend to anyone because we all have a love one pass sooner or later, and this gives you a glimpse of how people deal with such strong feelings when everything may seem hopeless.

IMDB Review

This film adresses grief in a personal, therapeutic and historical sense. I am a mother who lost her child and I found it informative and moving. Grief is not easy to talk about for most people. Preston sharing his grief journey made me feel inspired to create, to have something tangible that holds my memories.
