Tucson, AZ - The critically acclaimed HBO Documentary Film BRILLO BOX (3¢ OFF) will screen for one time only at Tucson’s The Loft Cinema on Sunday, September 24, at 2pm, as part of Arthouse Theatre Day 2017.
Lisanne Skyler, the film’s writer and director, and UA School of Theatre, Film & Television professor, will participate in a conversation with The Loft Cinema’s program director, Jeff Yanc, following the screening. An official selection of the 54th New York Film Festival, BRILLO BOX (3¢ OFF) debuted on HBO August 7, and is available exclusively on all HBO platforms.
Over 40 UA School of Theatre, Film & Television alumni and students contributed to Skyler’s documentary, from development through promotion.
In 1969, Lisanne Skyler's parents bought an Andy Warhol “Brillo Box (3¢ Off)” sculpture for $1,000. An exact replica of a shipping carton for Brillo soap pads, Warhol’s Brillo Boxes were initially dismissed by the art world. But 40 years later, with Warhol’s reputation long secured, the same piece sold for more than $3 million at a record-breaking Christie’s auction. Blending a humorous family narrative with Pop Art history, Brillo Box (3¢ Off) follows this iconic work as it makes its way from a New York family’s living room to the contemporary global art market, exploring the ephemeral nature of art and value, and the decisions that shape a family’s history.
Tickets are on sale now at the Loft Cinema for $6 general admission and $5 for Loft members and students. Visit the Loft Cinema in person or their websiteto purchase tickets online. Please join us on the patio afterward for light refreshments as we mix and mingle!
