Our series theme this year is “Raiders of the Lost Art.” These films will “take you on an incredible journey into the world of opportunist thieves, forgotten masters and theft on a continental scale that left some of the world’s most precious works of art on the edge of destruction.”
Film: The Hunt for Faberge Eggs. Each year Carl Faberge designed a one-of-a-kind Easter egg for the Tsars of Russia. But Feberge was forced to flee Russia during the revolution and eight of these priceless Imperial Eggs went missing, With one recently uncovered, could the other seven have survived the chaos of 1917?
Speaker: Dr. Bonnie Gordon Flickinger will speak about "Faberge Fantasies and Treasures: Jewelers to Kings, Queens, Shahs and Czars"
