"My Kid Could Paint That," directed by Amir Bar-Lev
[Anthony Brunelli, Gallery Owner] Every person in this situation is perfect. The family is charismatic. Marla, when you see her, she's a doll. The paintings are unbelievable. Even if a 3 or 4-year-old didn't do them, you'd like them.
[Amir Bar-Lev] Yeah.
[Anthony Brunelli, Gallery Owner] The fact that she is four makes it really incredible.
[Amir Bar-Lev] Right.
[Anthony Brunelli, Gallery Owner] They have this little 2-and-a-half year-old son, Zane.
[Amir Bar-Lev] Yeah, yeah.
[Anthony Brunelli, Gallery Owner] Both him and Marla could be on Gap ads.
October 1, 2004, Binghamton, NY
[Amir Bar-Lev] Tell us what's happening today.
[Anthony Brunelli, Gallery Owner] Today is the opening of Marla's show, here at the gallery. And it's just complete and utter bedlam with all the news crew that are here, and the people from all over the world that have come to Great Binghamton. It's just pandemonium about this little girl and her work.
The fact that she's in Binghamton doesn't matter. Doesn't matter if she's in Binghamton or SoHo, New York. People are calling and emailing from all over the world to buy her paintings. We sold three today, over the phone.
[Answers telephone] Hello.
The owner of the Houston Rockets just bought one, which is unbelievable.
[To telephone] I'm actually in the middle of an interview right now.
If you picked a name out of a hat of a TV program, they called.
I mean, from Conan O'Brien, Letterman, Oprah just called. 60 Minutes is here.
It's probably the most popular story in the world right now.
This is bigger than I had even anticipated. I will admit though, and I told this to the parents the first time that I saw her work, I said, "You're in for a wild ride. I hope you're prepared for this."
