About the film: For as long as human beings have been making art we have been telling lies: exaggerating our own accomplishments to scare off the competition, propping up power and privilege, or, contrarily, fomenting revolution. This engaging, wide-ranging essay film from Larry Weinstein looks at our own fraught political moment in the broad context of art history. In a tightly packed 90 minutes, Weinstein interviews several notable artists, including Ai Weiwei, Shepard Fairey and Kent Monkman.
