Joy Will Find a Way: Experience Butte County’s Resilience Through the Arts (2020) Unrated | 129 min. | Arts Documentary
Perhaps the surest sign of human resilience is in the rise of creativity, the art spirit.
Filmed on November 10, 2019 at Paradise Performing Arts Center, ‘Joy Will Find a Way’ brought together 150 accomplished and emerging artists in a variety of disciplines —music, theatre, dance, poetry and prose, photography, film, painting, sculpture and other visual arts—in a presentation of mostly original arts expressing the experience of our community through a narrative of remembrance, recovery and resurgence.
