"Chasing Portraits" — LAST DAY

(Apr. 26-May 2) — Moshe Rynecki (1881-1943) was a prolific Warsaw-based artist who painted scenes of the Polish-Jewish community until he was murdered at Majdanek concentration camp. After the war, Moshe’s wife was only able to recover a small fraction of his work, but unbeknownst to the family, many other pieces survived.

For more than a decade Moshe’s great-granddaughter, Elizabeth, has searched for the missing art, with remarkable and unexpected success. Given how much of Warsaw was destroyed, and how few Polish Jews survived, it is a miracle that her father, grandparents – and any of her great-grandfather’s paintings – survived at all. Spanning three generations, "Chasing Portrait"s is a deeply moving narrative of the richness of one man’s art, the devastation of war, and one woman’s unexpected path to healing.

April 26th and April 27th, Q&A with the director Elizabeth Rynecki after the 7:00pm screening.
