Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival: Portrait of Wally
In 1939, Nazis seized control of Austrian art collector Lea Bondi's beloved Egon Schiele painting "Portrait of Wally." The Bondi family's fight to reclaim the painting pitted them against the Austrian government, billionaire art collectors, MoMA, & NPR. Andrew Shea's intricate detective story highlights the struggle between doing what is right and doing what is convenient.
