Art & Copy is a powerful new film about advertising and inspiration that reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time—people who've profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry.

Exploding forth from advertising's "creative revolution" of the 1960s, these artists and writers all brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work in a business more often associated with mediocrity or manipulation. They managed to grab the attention of millions and truly move them. Visually interwoven with their stories, TV satellites are launched, billboards are erected, and the social and cultural impact of their ads are brought to light in this dynamic exploration of art, commerce, and human emotion.
