Following the film screening on Tue 12 Nov we will be joined by Levente Sipos, technical director on Ruben Brandt, Collector for a Q&A.
This visually surreal film is aimed at adults and art lovers alike. Ruben Brandt, a famous psychotherapist, is forced to steal thirteen paintings from world renowned museums and private collections to prevent his suffering from terrible nightmares he has as a result of subliminal messaging he received as a child.
Accompanied by his four patients, he and his band of thieves strike regularly and with great success: the Louvre, Tate, Uffizi, Hermitage and MoMA. The Collector quickly becomes the most wanted criminal in the world. Gangsters and head-hunters chase him around the world while the reward for his capture keeps rising, approaching a hundred million dollars. A cartel of insurance companies entrusts Mike Kowalski, a private detective and leading expert on art theft, to solve the Collector Case.
