Short Film: ‘The Pixel Painter’ is a Portrait of the Artist as an Adorable Old Man

The Pixel Painter

Why Watch? It’s obvious why this documentary is blowing up in a big way.  Hal Lasko is an incredibly compelling figure: a 97-year-old modest spitfire whose lust for life manifests itself in art created on MS Paint. Not only is he talented and achingly patient, he’s sweet and affable in that way that makes you want to adopt him as your own.

And through the joyous, sometimes emotional storytelling of Josh Bogdan and Ryan Lasko, Hal has become everyone’s grandpa.

What Will It Cost? Around 8 minutes.
