Virtual Screening – The Painter and the Thief

Desperate for answers about the theft of her 2 paintings, a Czech artist seeks out and befriends the career criminal who stole them. After inviting her thief to sit for a portrait, the two form an improbable relationship and an inextricable bond that will forever link these lonely souls. It is a remarkable, transformative documentary, in which the director explores the relationship between the subjects, gets to deeper truths, and is a soul-stirring, life-affirming watch.

“Astonishing. Unbelievable. The cinematic equivalent to a cubist painting” – Variety.

Documentary, 2020 Norway, 102 min, Dir: Benjamin Ree
