The rousing tale of Robert Cenedella, a rebel who never fit into today’s art world, yet has become one of its most provocative, rabble-rousing characters. A student, protégé, and friend of German artist George Grosz, Cenedella is now passing on the legacy of Grosz's approach to art, in the very same room where Grosz taught. 
Presented in partnership with the Utah Film Center.
