Remember MeThis film explores Ross Bleckner’s creative process and the lifestyle that drives it. The viewer experiences the energy of the artist as he prepares for a show and what it's like for him to be present at his own Opening Night.

They weave an intricate web of critical commentary and loyal defense, ultimately revealing an artist of complexity and impressive staying power.
