Who the $#%& Is Jackson Pollock? ()

directed by
featuring Teri Horton, Peter Paul Biro, Thomas Hoving, Bill Page, Tod Volpe

Filmmaker Harry Moses offers humorous and revealing insight into the art authentication process in America by documenting the remarkable tale of a seventy-three-year old former long haul trucker who was snubbed by the art establishment after purchasing a Jackson Pollock painting for five dollars at a local thrift shop. When Teri Horton purchased a painting by one of the Twentieth Century's most respected abstract expressionist artists, she never suspected that she would find herself struggling against some of the most powerful figures in the world of art. Despite hiring a forensic scientist who discovered that a fingerprint on the back of the painting's canvas proved a positive match with a fingerprint discovered on a can of paint in Pollock's studio, and that the paint itself matched a can of pain found on Pollock's studio floor, Horton was inexplicably snubbed when the art establishment proclaimed that the painting which should have fetched upwards of $50 million was completely worthless. In the fifteen years that followed, the ageing woman with only an eighth grade education would embark on an arduous uphill battle against the elitists of the art world that would forever reveals the secrets of just how art is purchased and sold in modern day America. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis
