Who the $&% Is Jackson Pollock?

Wednesday, January 29, 2020

Sometimes thrifting can be extremely rewarding. This may or may not be one of those times.

"Everybody knows that a fairytale starts out 'Once Upon a Time.' But a truck driver's tale starts out, 'you ain't gonna believe this!'"
-Teri Horton

Documentary: When Horton, a 73-year-old former truck driver with an eighth grade education, buys a thrift shop painting for five dollars, she has no idea the painting in question might possibly be the work of art icon Jackson Pollock - or indeed, who Pollock is. 

This adventure documents a 15-year war with the art world's inner circle, lifts the veil on how art is bought and sold in America and introduces audiences to the funny, profane and utterly unforgettable Teri Horton.

Rated PG-13
