synopsis
Brooklyn based artist Mark Lombardi created graphic artwork portraying the opaque global network of financial and political elites, including their ties to international terrorism. His masterpiece - "BCCI" - was investigated by the FBI after the attacks of September 11th, 2001. By that time, however, the artist was dead from an apparent suicide one year earlier, just as his career was reaching new heights. "Mark Lombardi: Death-Defying Acts of Art and Conspiracy" investigates an artist whose works transformed contemporary power structures into visual art and whose death left many questions regarding this system's intentions and breadth.
