Both a documentary and feature production are planned, the former being produced and directed by Franklin Martin; the latter being written and directed by Martin. It is the story of Martin Ramirez, a homeless Mexican immigrant who spent years in the California mental hospital system but now is considered by many critics to be one of the greatest artists of the Twentieth Century. Ramirez left Mexico when he was thirty, filled with hopes of pursuing the American Dream for himself and his wife and four children. He had only been working on the railroads for a short time when he was picked up by the police and committed to a psychiatric asylum, diagnosed as catatonic schizophrenic. For the rest of his life—thirty-two years—he lived in silence, his voice coming through in his drawings.
Ramirez's work might have remained in obscurity were it not for the interest of a visiting professor of psychology and art. In 2007, more than forty years after his death, the works of Ramirez were featured by the American Folk Art Museum and are considered an extraordinarily transcendant artistic achievement.
