“From Nothing, Something”
Everyone has ideas. But what where do they come from? And what ensures they keep coming? How do you sort the genius ideas from the useless ones? Why invest all this hope and energy into making things in the first place? “From Nothing, Something” profiles creative thinkers across a spectrum of disciplines and finds the methods, habits, beliefs and neuroses that lead to breakthrough ideas. This is a thoughtful, intimate, often funny look at the creative process – straight from the brains of some of our culture’s most accomplished and inspiring talents.
“HERB & DOROTHY 50 X 50″
Developed as the follow-up film to Megumi Sasaki’s award-winning documentary “HERB & DOROTHY” (2008), “HERB & DOROTHY 50×50″ captures the last chapter of the Vogel’s extraordinary life and their gift to the nation, raising various questions on art, and what it takes to support art in today’s society. In 2008, legendary art collectors Herb and Dorothy Vogel made an announcement that stunned the art world. Known and loved as a retired postal worker (herb) and librarian (Dorothy) who built a world-class art collection on their humble salaries, the Vogels launched a national gift project with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC that would constitute one of the largest gifts in the history of American art: to give a total of 2,500 artworks to museums in all 50 states.
