Alfred Eaker and J Ross Eaker of Eaker Productions have produced and directed a documentary about Raymond Thunder-Sky. The film, now making the rounds with film festival review boards, documents Raymond’s life and influence through interviews with Cincinnati artists, co-workers, construction workers, and fans who knew him. The cumulative effect of the film is a portrait not just of Raymond as a man or artist, but as a cultural and spiritual figure who through the persistence of his art-making and brave exploration of his own aesthetic universe, and through the persistence of those his life touched, became a touchstone for what it means to be creative and alive.

An art gallery and organization, inspired by Raymond Thunder-Sky — an unconventional artist whose works and life transcend notions of “outsider” and “insider” art, breaks barriers, demolishes stereotypes, and empowers artists (both self-taught and formally educated) through showcasing their works and stories side by side.
A documentary film directed and produced by Alfred Eaker & J. Ross Eaker.
