Synopsis: "The Sun Still Shines" uses a series of line drawings by Rita Blitt made in presence of a percussion performance in the mid-90s. Those drawings, out of thousands of Blitt works, stayed in her mind for 25 years, pulling her to create another project inspired by them. Composer Michael Udow created music influenced by forty of the drawings.
The resulting project became this film, "The Sun Still Shines", which is Blitt's message of hope and resilience in the wake of 2020's world-wide pandemic and ongoing environmental disaster, including the nearby California wildfires.
