Aggie Documentary Trailer

"Aggie understands that art makes it possible for us to have empathy." Strand Releasing has debuted an official trailer for the acclaimed biopic documentary Aggie, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. An exploration of the nexus of art, race and justice through the story of art collector Agnes Gund who sold Roy Lichtenstein's painting "Masterpiece" for $165 million to start the Art for Justice Fund to end mass incarceration (after she saw Ava DuVernary's film 13th which opened her eyes). Better known as "Aggie", Gund is a world famous art collector and philanthropist and the doc is made by her daughter, Catherine. "The film captures Aggie as a true maverick who demonstrates the unique role and potential of collectors and benefactors to use art to fight justice. This is untapped terrain, and we see Aggie leading the way." You may think, why watch a film about this woman? Well, there's more to it than that - worth a look.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Catherine Gund's documentary Aggie, originally from Apple:
