When filmmaker Lisanne Skyler was a baby, an Andy Warhol “Brillo Box” sculpture served as a coffee table, until her father traded it for a drawing by Peter Young. The HBO Documentary Film Brillo Box (3¢ off), an of cal selection of the 54th New York Film Festival, tracks the remarkable journey of an iconic Andy Warhol sculpture from one family’s living room through the global art market, exploring the ephemeral nature of art and value.

Lisanne Skyler is a writer/director of numerous award-winning feature, documentary and short films that have been presented at such festivals as Sundance Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, New York Film Festival and Cinéma du Réel in Paris. Recent work includes A Few Things About Robert Irwin for the LACMA Art + Film Series. Skyler is an Associate Professor at the University of Arizona School of Theatre, Film, and Television.

Peter Young has been the subject of major retrospectives at PS1 and MOCA Tucson. His work is featured in collections in such institutions as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; University of Texas, Austin; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among many others.
