The Dolls of Lisbon portrays a collective of international artists who were each given a blank canvas doll and asked to create a unique piece of art, the culmination of which was then displayed at an annual art fair in Lisbon, Portugal.  The larger story – a story almost every artist knows well – is the struggle to create art while surviving in a monetarily based world. Through interviews and live art events, the viewer experiences the frustration of artists to maintain their creative inspiration and passion while keeping a roof over their head and food on their plate. In a world of art commercialization and fiscal greed, these artists literally bleed their art to do what they love.
