In the first deal of the Sundance Film Festival, HBO Documentary Films has picked up the art documentary The Price of Everything 

Director Nathaniel Kahn took a deep dive into the high-end art world, where artistic passion and consumerism collide. The feature includes interviews with collectors, dealers, auctioneers and artists like Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter and Njideka Akunyili Crosby.

Jennifer Blei Stockman and Debi Wisch for Hot & Sunny Productions and Carla Solomon for Anthos Media produced, with Lisa Remington and Kayla Malahiazar acting as co-producers. 

The Price of Everything will debut in the U.S. Documentary Competition at the fest. HBO nabbed the U.S. TV rights to the film and will also open it in theaters in a minimum of 12 U.S. markets prior to its HBO premiere.
