a film review by Dana Taylor
The amazing spiritual artist, Akiane Kramarik, recently uploaded a fascinating 24 minute biographical documentary to YouTube. Since the age of eight, Akiane has been an international sensation. The biopic, Painting the Impossible, is narrated by 23-year-old Akiane and features footage taken over the course of her lifetime. The film begins “The day Akiane was born, someone left a gift on the doorstep ~ an old film camera.”
To say her story is unusual is putting it mildly. Akiane’s loving, but unconventional family, experienced extreme deprivation in her early years. At the age of four, she began having visions that she felt compelled to paint. Poetry would soon follow.
As with most great artists, Akiane suffers from a great deal of angst. She is driven by internal forces that at once inspire but also haunt her. The narration feels a bit over-the-top at times with self-indulgent drama. Yet, Akiane’s spectacular work cannot be denied.
From an esoteric viewpoint, she appears to be one of the much heralded Star Children. There was even an incident at the age of six when she “disappeared” one day into another dimension and spontaneously reappeared many hours later. The “missing hours” gave her profound information and instructions to bring back to the earthy plane. Hear her relate her experience in this YouTube Interview.
