Chasing Portraits

"Chasing Portraits is about a search.Yet the most affecting parts of this documentary come with the realization that some things may never be found."  -THE NEW YORK TIMES

Moshe Rynecki was a prolific Warsaw-based artist who painted scenes of the Polish-Jewish community until he was murdered during the Holocaust. After the war, Moshe’s wife was only able to recover a small fraction of his work, but unbeknownst to the family, many other pieces survived.

For more than a decade his great-granddaughter, Elizabeth, has searched for the missing art, with remarkable and unexpected success. Spanning three generations, Chasing Portraits is a deeply moving narrative of the richness of one man’s art, the devastation of war, and one woman’s unexpected path to healing.
