Film Screening: "The Art of the Steal" (Don Argott, 2009, 101 min, USA, in English, Color, DVD). A documentary that follows the struggle for control of Dr. Albert C. Barnes' 25 billion dollar collection of modern and post-impressionist art. Controversial and suspenseful, it evolves like a crime thriller as a collector's legally documented wishes are corrupted by the vulgarity of commerce.
