ABOUT WHO THE #$&% IS JACKSON POLLOCK?

After Teri Horton, a 73-year-old semi-truck driver with an eighth-grade education, bought a large splatter painting for her friend at the Dot Spot Thrift Shop in San Bernardino, California, for $5, she was forced to sell it in her own garage sale when her friend said it would not fit in her house trailer. An art teacher who spotted the painting commented that it might be an original work by Jackson Pollock—and potentially worth $50 million. This documentary follows Horton, her son, and a forensics specialist as they attempt to prove to the world, or more specifically the art community, that this unlikely find is a true modern masterpiece. In Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock? veteran documentary filmmaker Harry Moses exposes the controversy in the world of high-priced artwork as he paints a vivid picture of how art is bought and sold in America. (2006 | Rated PG-13 | 1 hour, 14 minutes)
