PORTRAIT OF WALLY

Directed by Andrew Shea
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 90 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE PORTRAIT OF WALLY
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. Director Andrew Shea's documentary is a fascinating and intricate detective story that highlights the struggle between doing what is right and doing what is convenient.

After the Movie: Stay for a conversation with director Andrew Shea, critic and journalist David D'Arcy, Jane Kallir of Galerie St. Etienne, historian and attorney Willi Korte, and Chief of the Asset Forfeiture Unit at the U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York Sharon Cohen Levin about the issues of provenance and the global sharing of art in museums. Moderated by Monica Dugot, International Director of Restitution and Senior Vice President at Christie's.
