ABOUT THE ART
"The directorial debut of Oscar-nominated actor Casey Affleck, I’M STILL HERE is a striking portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of internationally acclaimed actor Joaquin Phoenix. With remarkable access, I’M STILL HERE follows the Oscar-nominee as he announces his retirement from a successful film career in the fall of 2008 and sets off to reinvent himself as a hip hop musician. Sometimes funny, sometimes shocking, and always riveting, the film is a portrait of an artist at a crossroads. Defying expectations, it deftly explores notions of courage and creative reinvention, as well as the ramifications of a life spent in the public eye."
"Sharp-eyed citizens of New York, L.A., San Francisco, Boston, and other major cities might have noticed these wild postings of Joaquin Phoenix’s bearded visage popping up recently, ostensibly in promotion of September 10’s I’m Still Here, the Casey Affleck–directed documentary on Phoenix’s fledgling hip-hop career. Well, Vulture just confirmed that they’re actually the work of artist Shepard Fairey. So if music doesn’t work out for Joaquin, maybe he can be president."
