"Spanish art collector Martín Solo, owner of a private gallery in Madrid, is a man on a mission, determined not to repeat the mistakes of the recent past. The first to discover an artist named Richard Weismann, he committed the error of allowing others to know of him without initially claiming exclusive promotional rights. In the art world, as in the arena of journalism, s/he who strikes early gets the fame and, hopefully, fortune. Now, with a new painter in his sights, he has major plans, with a cutting-edge showcase in the works. So begins director Alberto Triano’s lively and charming debut feature documentary, Everyone Wants to Be the Next Weismann, which follows Solo and his rising star as they get ready for the big opening, which will hopefully guarantee for both a slice of glory-and-payday pie."
