Ryan’s Renaissance chronicles an improbable human journey, friendship, and what transpires after Oscar nominated Ryan Larkin (Walking) becomes the world’s most famous panhandler after the film “Ryan” wins an Academy Award. It begins when Ryan, still living at a homeless shelter and Laurie Gordon, a Montreal musician asks Ryan to “draw a few pictures” for her band’s video which serendipitously becomes Spare Change, Ryan’s first animation film in 35 years. We follow this quirky duo’s utopian attempt to get their film off the ground. Ryan’s generous unconcern for the camera eye allows us to witness unbearable moments of human pain, hilarious events, and gripping insight into creativity, vision, and a yearning for a place to call home.
