Cute Old Couple Hoards Art

The summer is all about loving life and reminding yourself why you should appreciate every little moment. And with that focus in mind, I present you the trailer for Herb and Dorathy. Directed by Megumi Sasaki, this humble little film follows Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian. The two managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means. These two compiled a serious art collection too, grabbing over 2,000 pieces over thirty years. Needless to say, their apartment was nearly bursting with art before the two donated their entire collection to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

If you think that story could really warm your heart (and it should you insensitive jerks), head on over to apple to watch the trailer and prepare yourself for a nice, wholesome summer documentary.
