ABOUT THE FILM
In a film as sharp as a Banksy picture shredder, Oscar-nominated Nathaniel Kahn exposes the rarified world of contemporary art. Fortunes are spent as collectors and dealers turn creative output into hot commodities. How should art be valued? What effect does the art business have on museums, on the public’s ability to access it and on the artists themselves? The contrasts between the aesthetics, philosophy and process of artists Jeff Koons and Larry Poons provide an anchor for a horrifyingly fascinating look at galleries, studios, auctions and some very, very rich buyers. Nominated for Best Documentary at multiple festivals, including Sundance.
