Desperate for answers about the theft of her 2 paintings, Czech artist Barbora Kysilkova seeks out and befriends the career criminal who stole them. After inviting her thief to sit for a portrait, the two form an improbable relationship and an inextricable bond.

Filmed over three years, The Painter and the Thief follows a remarkable story that turns where you least expect it; an exercise in profound empathy, messy humanity and the subtle complexities of our relationships.
