Megumi Sasaki's 2008 documentary, Herb & Dorothy, was a hit with audiences at the MFAH and many other museums. The filmmaker updates their story in this new film. Herb and Dorothy Vogel, a retired postal clerk and librarian, began collecting works of contemporary art in the 1960s. The collection grew to nearly 5,000 pieces over 50 years and is worth millions. This follow-up to the award-winning documentary shadows the couple as they launch an unprecedented gift project: Giving artworks to one museum in all 50 states. The new film explores the outsized impact that these former civil servants still have on the American art world.
