FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE PORTRAIT OF WALLY [TFF 2012]
In 1939, Nazis seized control of Austrian art collector Lea Bondi's beloved Egon Schiele painting "Portrait of Wally." For 70 years the Bondi family fought to reclaim the painting in a battle that pitted them against the likes of the Austrian government, billionaire art collectors, MoMA, and NPR.
