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.
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.
