When artist Barbora Kysilkova had her paintings stolen, director Benjamin Ree got in touch, he wanted to film Barbora’s search to get them back. What follows is a unique saga, replete with twists, turns, heartbreak, failure and redemption.

One of Mark’s favourite films of 2020, he told us he was certain that everyone at film club would love to see The PAINTER AND THE THIEF.

 Critics agreed:

 “Fascinating, confounding and continually surprising…” Wendy Ide – The Observer

“What an engrossing film” – The Guardian

“Extraordinary documentary – there’s a heist, villains who are not what they seem, scenes of striking intimacy and some fabulous twists.” Ed Potton – The Times.

 THE PAINTER AND THE THIEF, our extraordinary film for Thursday 24th June.
