The Painter and the Thief

Benjamin Ree / Norway 2020 / 102 min. / 15 years / DCP
A Norwegian addict steals two paintings from a young Czech painter – and thanks to that, she begins painting him and gettting to know his face and soul. The story of an unconventional and difficult friendship becomes the subject of a multi-layered documentary portrait that excited the Sundance Film Festival last year. Winner of SFS Presents project in 2020.
