Film screening: The Missing Piece - Mona Lisa, Her Thief, The True Story
This award-winning documentary follows the story of Vincenzo Peruggia, an Italian man who stole Leonardo da Vinci's La Giaconda (Mona Lisa) from the Louvre in 1911. Although the painting was discovered and returned in 1913, the reasons behind the theft were never made clear, even to Peruggia's daughter, who appears in the film at age 84.
Filmmaker Joe Medeiros spent more than 30 years in search of the surprising truth. He will be available for a talkback following the screening.
