“Make Better Art” is the phrase coined by famed Los Angeles artist Betye Saar. Saar’s incredible journey as a creator, teacher, activist, mother and Black woman in America is lovingly documented as the viewer witnesses the 96-year-old artist from 2014 through 2021, a period of time when she received unprecedented recognition in the contemporary art world after creating art for nearly six decades. This cinematic tour-de-force includes exclusive interviews with contemporary artists, gallerists, curators, family members, friends, people in her inner circle and Saar herself. Capturing footage of Saar receiving honors around the country including her simultaneous solo museum exhibition openings at the Museum of Modern Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art the audience is granted glimpses of Saar’s creative process and able to witness the well-deserved accolades bestowed on one of America’s national treasures.
