In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize “degenerate art,” and one curated by Hitler to glorify “classic art.” Italian actor Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty) narrates this account of the systematic bartering, looting, and destruction of great art during WWII. Features masterpieces by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and Gauguin. Cleveland premiere. (Italy, 2018, subtitles, color, Blu-ray, 94 min.)
