Nearly 70 years after Hitler’s downfall, the legal and political struggles continue to return Nazi-looted art works, dubbed “the last prisoners of war,” to their original Jewish owners.

The documentary follows the twists and turns, involving a large cast of Austrian and American museum directors, art dealers, politicians and various sleazy characters, which finally led to the recovery in 2010 of Viennese painter Egon Schiele’s portrait of his mistress, nicknamed “Wally”.

Currently, the film is screening at Laemmle’s Town Center in Encino through Thursday (July 26),and on subsequent weekends at thje Town Center and the Monica Theatre in Santa Monica. For background and details on the documentary, visit www.portraitofwally.com.
