PORTRAIT OF A LADY
The son of a famous painter explores the world of his father’s paintings, searching for traces of his late mother’s ghost.
Portrait of a Lady is a graduate film by Kenny Leoncito made during his last year at Sheridan. It is a dream like film that explores uncovering cultural identity and the bond between mother and son. The film is a tribute to the artistic contributions made by 19th century Filipino artist and social activist, Juan Luna and a romantic horror based on the urban legends that surround the cursed painting, Portrait of a Lady.
