POW stands for "Portrait of Wally," at Tribeca Film Festival

On April 28 and 29, this Saturday and Sunday, Tribeca Film Festival will show a documentary about the restitution case of Egon Schiele’s “Portrait of Wally.”

Some details from the press release: “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.”

On Saturday, the screening will be followed with a conversation with director Andrew Shea, journalist David D’Arcy, gallery owner Jane Kallir, and attorneys Willi Korte, Sharon Cohen Levin and Monica Dugot.
