"Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck" pulls back the curtain on a fantastically unique artist, David Beck, a master sculptor, carver, and miniature architect who works in a fantastical genre all his own, combining "the meticulous craftsmanship and precision of a mechanical engineer with the sometimes wacky worldview of a Tim Burton." (John Yau, Hyperallergenic). Coming out from his formative years in New York City on the edge of destitution, David Beck is still a largely undiscovered genius, only known to a select group of collectors and curators who snap up his work as soon as it comes out. "Curious Worlds: David Beck" is an intimate portrait of the most accomplished American artist you’ve never heard of.

"The Cardboard Bernini" examines the life and work of artist James Grashow as he spends four years building a giant cardboard fountain, with the intention of putting it outside to dissolve. Inspired by the baroque sculptor Bernini, and propelled by a crucial event documented in the film, Grashow is driven to experience the process of creation and loss by making an extraordinary artwork that will be destroyed in the end. This film follows Jimmy’s journey, as he questions life’s fragility and the artistic process.
