Directed by Catherine Gund, daughter of the subject, Aggie is a new documentary about art collector Agnes Gund, who sold Roy Lichtenstein’s painting ‘Masterpiece’ for $165 million in 2017.
A huge sum that’s dedicated to start the Art for Justice Fund to end mass incarceration. In this way Gund’s film offers an exploration of the nexus of art, race and justice.
‘Aggie understands that art makes it possible for us to have empathy, and that without empathy, there is no justice.’
Empathy really is one of the biggest takeaways from movies, which makes sense since ‘film is the perfect amalgamation of all the arts’.
I’m watching Aggie to learn more about and spend time with Agnes Gund, clearly an extraordinary human.
Aggie Release Dates: October 7th, 2020 (US)…
Happy Film Loving
