About :

Is it just the stories we tell ourselves that really matter? This question is at the heart of Hero by Shawn Records. Faced with the cloud of doubts that comes along with turning forty, Records honored the milestone by re-writing his own life, over-riding randomness by carefully sequencing a deadpan epic out of disparate photographic odds and ends that had accumulated over time. Rising and falling in narrative arcs that flirt with the comic as much as the heroic, Hero transcends the day-to-day with empathy and wit.
