CHASING PORTRAITS

A Great-Granddaughter’s Quest for Her Lost Art Legacy

Director: Elizabeth Rynecki | Documentary, USA | English | 78 min | 2018
An American woman’s emotional quest to find the art of her Polish-Jewish great-grandfather, lost during World War II. Moshe Rynecki’s body of work reached close to eight hundred paintings and sculptures before his life came to a tragic end. Decades later, his great-granddaughter Elizabeth, seeking to rediscover his legacy, set out on a journey to find what had been lost but never forgotten. Spanning three decades of Elizabeth’s life and three generations of her family, this compelling documentary is a deeply moving narrative of the richness of one man’s art, the devastation of war, and one woman’s unexpected path to healing.
