Synopsis The directing debut of the Oscar-nominated actor Casey Affleck, 'I'm Still Here', is an incredible depiction of the turbulent years in the life of the internationally acclaimed actor Joaquin Phoenix. Having a privileged access to the subject, 'I'm Still Here' follows the actor's life since he announced he would give up his successful film career in autumn 2008 and start a hip-hop musician's career. Sometimes funny and sometimes shocking, this engaging film shows an artist on his turning point. While resisting expectations, it skillfully explores the understanding of courage and creative transformations, as well as the consequences of a life under public scrutiny.
