Chicago Artists Coalition and the filmmakers of a new documentary titled The Price of Everything will host a free viewing and talkback for the Chicago arts community.
The Price of Everything is a feature documentary directed by twice Academy Award-nominated Nathaniel Kahn (My Architect). The film, which premieres theatrically on October 19th, explores the roles of art and artistic passion in today’s money-driven, consumer-based society — exposing deep contradictions as it holds a mirror up to contemporary values and times.
The film, together with the conversations it inspires, can galvanize audiences to bring into the public dialogue the challenges today’s artists encounter in an increasingly commodified market and world—with the goal of changing these conditions so that all artists have the opportunity to thrive. We hope you will come to the screening, and afterwards, add your voice to the important issues the film touches on.
More information about the film--including characters, film team, details about the release, and the social outreach goals--can be found on its website thepriceofeverything.com.
This special screening of The Price of Everything is supported, in part, by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
Chicago, IL 60610
