Dive Even Deeper

Try the following to connect further with the film’s story…

Experiments in painting

  • Just as the main character experienced many surprises and found great value in painting with his friend, so can you! Invite a friend, a family member, or a neighbor to spontaneously add strokes of paint or marker to a blank piece of paper. Reflect on your collaboration and together agree upon a title.
  • Or try painting or drawing on your own in a unique way. If you are right-handed, try painting with your left hand. Or go back and forth painting with the hand you are most comfortable with and then less comfortable with and see what you produce.

    It makes me contemplate how one chooses to spend their life, or how activities find a person.

    The love Ron has for Metro is a thing of beauty. The strong connection between Ron and Metro has a spiritual aspect to it, one filled with wonder and mystery.

    Finding more life when all the indicators say you’re at a dead end—it’s beautiful. And, dang, animals have given us humans so many gifts & shown us what outrageous courage can look like.

    The lack of judgement between animals and humans makes for a strong connection you can’t always get with another person. Metro and Ron have helped bring out the best in one another with their collaboration and found a sense of belonging outside of the society that could not see their inherent value. Definitely better together!
