Recently MovieWeb had the opportunity to sit down with director Amir Bar-Lev to discuss his film My Kid Could Paint That. This movie comes to theaters in limited release on October 5 from Sony Pictures Classics.

A documentary about Marla Olmstead, a 4-year old girl who has sold over $300,000 dollars worth of paintings. She has been called "a budding Picasso" and had been featured on several American news programs. The situation was looking bright for the girl and her family until CBS' 60 Minutes aired an expose suggesting strongly that the paintings were painted by her father, himself an amateur painter. With Marla's family's reputation in question, the filmmaker sheds further light on the situation where he is torn between his own responsibility as a journalist and the family's desire to see their integrity restored.

My Kid Could Paint That comes to theaters in limited release on October 5 from Sony Pictures Classics.
