Saturday, August 29, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Members & guests–free with Hulu, $1.99 to rent on Amazon and other platforms. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Desperate for answers about the theft of her 2 paintings, a Czech artist befriends the criminal who stole them. After inviting her thief to sit for a portrait, they form an relationship and bond that will forever link these lonely souls. The Painter and the Thief is a documentary by Norwegian filmmaker Benjamin Ree, who is known for his earlier work on the BBC. Ree was reportedly inspired to make this documentary by his interest in art robberies. Join a group discussion led by Village member Mel Washburn via Zoom at 3:00 PM.
