This documentary tells how a depressed, post-industrial small town in western Massachusetts was transformed into an art world powerhouse when it converted the brick buildings of a massive shuttered factory into MASS MoCA, the largest museum for contemporary art in the world. Features interviews with curators, factory workers, fabricators, and artists like Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Nick Cave, and James Turrell. Narrated by Meryl Streep; music by John Stirratt of Wilco. “A remarkable achievement…This is art as cultural inspiration and economic development.” –Austin Chronicle. Cleveland premiere. 76 min.
