A Conversation with Filmmaker Elizabeth Rynecki, the director, producer, and writer for the 2018 film, Chasing Portraits. This inspiring film is about one man's art and one woman's unexpected path to healing. Follow an American woman’s emotional quest to find the paintings of her Polish-Jewish great-grandfather, lost during World War II.
Watch the movie on your own and have an intimate Q&A session with this independent filmmaker and discuss her journey of family, the film, book, and her great-grandfather's art.
