Aggie

Aggie

Explores the nexus of art, race, and justice through the story of art collector and philanthropist Agnes “Aggie” Gund’s life.

The New York philanthropist and art patron, Aggie, was deeply moved by Ava DuVernay’s 2016 Oscar-nominated documentary 13th on the mass incarceration of African-Americans.

In 2017 Gund established the $100 million Art for Justice Fund to reform the American criminal justice system and end mass incarceration in the US. This film, directed by Aggie’s daughter, tells the story of a remarkable person and the power of art to inspire social change.
