A short film about an Argentine artist named Ioshua chronicles the man's quest to fit in and stand out at the same time. But there are a lot of obstacles in his way.
"What happens when homosexuality meets poverty in a slum in South America and turns the life of the writer and visual artist Ioshua into a stereotype-challenging-icon?" the Vimeo description notes.
A chronicler of gay life through comic-book-like sketches, Ioshua describes his rebuffed efforts to break into the arts scene in Buenos Aires. Then he makes a fateful move that vaults him to greater recognition.
The story of a struggling artist who overcame his circumstance still resonates.
