About the Film

A hybrid political thriller and verité portrait documentary, A Revolution on Canvas is part art-heist, part political thriller, part family drama. In this new documentary, Sara Nodjoumi, working with co-director and husband, Till Schauder, makes her directorial debut with this personal film, diving into the mystery surrounding the disappearance of more than 100 "treasonous" paintings by her father, seminal Iranian modern artist Nickzad "Nicky" Nodjoumi.

Presented in partnership with the Twin Cities Iranian Culture Collective.
