A Judge, a Lawyer, a Scholar and
a Woman in Gold

Helen Mirren
In 1938, Gustav Klimt’s painting, The Woman in Gold, was stolen from its rightful owner when the Nazis invaded Austria. In 1999, Maria Altmann began her legal battle to have the painting returned to her family, which culminated in the 2004 US Supreme Court ruling in Altmann v. Republic of Austria.

Please join us for a special screening of Woman in Gold, featuring Academy Award winner, Helen Mirren, as Maria Altmann and her tireless efforts to reclaim the painting she remembered as a child. 

Prior to the screening, there will be an onstage conversation between Don Burris, one of the lawyers in the firm that won the Altmann case, and Michael Marrus, a Holocaust historian. This spirited discussion will be joined by Justice Edward M. Morgan, of the Ontario Superior Court, and former national president of the Canadian Jewish Congress.

Get the unique perspectives of the bar, the academy, and the bench, as we join the Woman in Gold on her unforgettable journey through history, the courts, and our hearts and minds.
