About the film:

Palme d’Or nominee, 2022 Cannes Film Festival

An artist on the verge of a career-changing exhibition navigates family, friends and colleagues in the lead-up to her show and finds that the chaos of life becomes the inspiration for more great art.

“an absolute, wry joy of a little comedy about making art and living life”

—Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
