Oscar-nominated documentarian Nathaniel Kahn (My Architect, Two Hands) is granted incredible access into the inner workings of the modern art world—a world where great artistic works are traded using the same buy low/sell high logic of the stock market, selling at astronomical prices that bring new meaning to the phrase "creative capital." Candid interviews with artists (Jeff Koons, Gerard Richter), dealers, and collectors help shed light on this eternal dance between art and commerce in this wildly entertaining attempt at answering the question of how we value art.
