The College of Fine Arts & Communication’s Associate Dean, Greg Faller and his filmmaking partner, Lillian Bowers, present a new documentary recounting the life, times, and diary of Rene Gimpel, an important Jewish art dealer, friend of almost all major French artists of the first half of the 20th century, and resistance fighter who died in the Neuengamme concentration camp. The film also narrates his heirs’ efforts to recover artworks stolen by the Nazis. Ms. Bowers, who read Gimpel's significant Diary of an Art Dealer, approached Faller about working together to create the 75-minute film.
Sol Davis, director of the Jewish Museum of Maryland, will introduce the film. A Q&A session with both Faller and Bowers will be held after the screening followed by a dessert reception.
