Producer: VPRO

Genres: Documentary, Factual


What's going on in the art world? Nowadays, a select number of artists receive millions for their digital artworks through the introduction of so-called NFTs. NFTs are 'non-fungible tokens', a type of digital property deed that makes virtual images negotiable.

For over a year, the NFTs have been the expensive new toys of often young, anonymous collectors with a lot of cryptocurrency. In this documentary, we meet a vanguard of digital artists at the largest international art fair in Miami. Here, the sun shines forever and a new generation of art collectors shows themselves for the first time. In this world NFT artists are the new prophets.
