AGGIE

Directed by Catherine Gund

Maverick Agnes “Aggie” Gund—heiress, art collector and philanthropist—sold Roy Lichtenstein’s Masterpiece for $165 million in 2017 to start the Art for Justice Fund, which aims to reduce mass incarceration in the United States. The internationally recognized supporter of marginalized artists, particularly women and people of color, was motivated by recent police shootings of unarmed teenagers and concern for her six African American grandchildren. Filmmaker Catherine Gund focuses on her mother’s life journey to give viewers an understanding of the power of art to transform consciousness and inspire social change.

Catherine Gund directed BORN TO FLY: ELIZABETH STREB VS. GRAVITY (SFF 2015).
