Guest of Cindy Sherman tells the real life tale of artist Paul H-O, who in 1993 founded (recently resurrected) Gallery Beat, a public access television program that playfully chronicled the New York art scene. H-O’s role as an outsider looking into the exclusive world of the art elite quickly changed when he met photographer superstar, Cindy Sherman. Over the course of several interviews their relationship grew into romance and Paul found himself swept into the NY art scene, becoming known as Cindy’s companion. The film confronts issues of gender, identity, ego, and offers a critique of the art market and the culture of celebrity. Unfortunately, after a few film festival screenings earlier this year, the film has not yet seen a wider theatrical run or DVD release.
