A monthly feature-length documentary series presented in partnership with the Calgary International Film Festival and Hot Docs, join Doc Soup Calgary for a screening of The Price of Everything.

Basquiat paintings regularly fetch tens of millions of dollars and the recent sale of a little-known Da Vinci topped $450 million—but what forces are driving the white-hot art market?

The Price of Everything leads viewers into a rarefied labyrinth of galleries, studios, and auction houses to explore what society loses and gains when art becomes a rich person’s commodity. With unprecedented access to in-demand artists like Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, and Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and to prominent collectors and dealers, Academy Award nominee Nathaniel Kahn coaxes out the dynamics at play in pricing the priceless.

The Price of Everything screens at 7:00pm on November 7, 2018 at Cineplex Eau Claire (200 Barclay Parade SW).

Advance tickets are sold out but there will be a rush line one hour before the film at the venue. The rush line is admitted on a first-come, first-served basis based on the number of empty seats available.
