The Mill and the Cross

Thursday, April 7

Polish visual artist Lech Majewski has created a motion picture titled The Mill and the Cross based on the painting by Peter Bruegel, "The Way to Calvary".

The inspiration came from the book The Mill and the Cross, written by Michael Francis Gibson, in which th story of Christ's Passion is set in Flanders in the year 1564, the very year Bruegel painting his masterpiece. Among the 500 plus figures swarming over the Bruegel's canvas, Gibson, together with Majewski, selected a dozen characters whose life stories unfold and intertwine. To recreate this unique work on film, computer graphics produce the backgrounds from the original Bruegel paintings.

Thursday, May 1

In March of 1990, two thieves dressed as Boston police officers gained entrance to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts and successfully executed the largest art heist in modern history. Among the thirteen priceless works stolen was Vermeer's "The Concert" one of only 35 of the masters surviving works. Not a single one of the works has been recovered. Stolen is a full exploration of the Gardner theft, and the fascinating, disparate characters involved: from the 19th century Grand Dame Isabella Gardner to a private detective obsessed with finding the art to a terrorist organization with a penchant for stealing Vermeers.
