That Which is Possible

That Which Is Possible documents a community of painters, sculptors, musicians and writers making work at the Living Museum, an art-space on the grounds of a large state-run psychiatric facility in Queens, New York. Shot over the course of two years and structured across the arc of a day, the film observes with an intimate lens and unspools like a musical, both bracing and tender. That Which Is Possible explores the liberatory and reparative functions that creative action has for a group of artists drawn together by shared struggle.

Michael Gitlin makes work about the intricate conceptual and ideological structures that we use to organize our ways of knowing the world. His film and video projects have been screened at numerous venues, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the New York Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, the Full Frame Documentary Festival, the London Film Festival and the Whitney Biennial Exhibition. Gitlin received an M.F.A. from Bard College and teaches at Hunter College in New York City. He splits his time between Tivoli and Brooklyn, NY .
