Forty five years of marriage is an impressive anniversary. Barbara and Zdzislaw could be proud of themselves if not for the fact that the husband left the wife for his lover eight years ago. But now they are together again, although Barbara claims that if it were not for his infirm legs, Zdzislaw would still be chasing skirts around Kraków. Despite the past resentment, everyday problems with paying bills, an occupied bathroom and rearranging furniture, they have a hard to define bond.
Brillo Box (3¢ off)
United States | 2016 | 40 min | English | Stephanie Meurer
In 1969, Skyler’s parents bought an Andy Warhol Brillo Box for $1,000. Forty years later, in 2010, the same sculpture sold for $3,000,000 at a record-breaking Christie’s auction. Blending Pop Art history with personal narrative, 'Brillo Box (3¢ off)' follows this Andy Warhol sculpture as it makes its way from a New York family’s living room to the global art market, exploring the ephemeral nature of art and value, and the complex role art plays in our lives and the decisions that shape family history.
