Box Office Open At Regal Cinema On Main Street Sarasota

Minted

In the gripping documentary, director Nicholas Bruckman masterfully delves into the captivating and often perplexing world of the forty-billion-dollar NFT (non-fungible token) digital art market, chronicling its meteoric highs and lows through the perspective of artists around the globe. Through a combination of vérité footage, candid interviews, and powerful archival film, Bruckman expertly weaves together the multifaceted story of this groundbreaking phenomenon. The film introduces us to a rich tapestry of artists who have found incredible success in this new landscape, such as Beeple, the creator of the record-breaking $69 million artwork, to emerging artists from the U.S., Latin America, and Africa, whose lives are forever changed by this technology. Minted spans the entire arc of the NFT craze, from its early origins in digital art, to the explosive boom in 2021, to its dramatic crash in 2022. Bruckman doesn’t shy away from presenting the critical voices within the NFT conversation who question the long-term viability and social implications of NFTs. It’s a fascinating exploration of the perils and possibilities of this volatile and vibrant world, offering insights into the very essence of human creativity, the value of art, and the transformative power of technology.
