The Altruist - An Artist and a Yearbook - Touching Video

In "The Altruist," artist Laurie Munn documents her adventure in found portraiture: working from a 1965 yearbook from Emerson High in Union City, New Jersey that she found in the trash, Munn painted portraits of all 220 members of the class of 65. Then she returned to the Emerson High and tracked down the subjects of her portraits to show them the great work -- discovering the heartbreaking story of the original yearbook on the way.
It's a fabulous short feature, with humor, pathos, art and nostalgia all swirled up together in a mad project.

The reunion would have been 4 years ago. Where's the update?

For anyone out there who thinks one person can't make a difference, this video is proves the opposite. :Thmbsup:
