10:30 am – my kid could paint that (2008) (Est. 1.5 hours) - Click here

The movie follows the early artistic career of Marla Olmstead, a young girl from Binghamton, New York who gains fame first as a child prodigy painter of abstract art, and then becomes the subject of controversy concerning whether she truly completed the paintings herself or did so with her parents' assistance and/or direction.

1:00 pm – The Rape of Europa (2006) (Est. 2 hours) - Click here 

The story of Nazi Germany's plundering of Europe's great works of art during World War II and Allied efforts to minimize the damage.

3:15 pm – The Show That Shook The World (2013) (Est. 1 hour) - Click here 

This is the first film ever to record the history of one of the most important cultural events of the twentieth century - the 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art. Now celebrating its 100th anniversary, the exhibition - known as 'The Armory Show' - prompted a storm of controversy. Introducing such 'unknown' artists as Picasso, Matisse and Gauguin, the work most vilified by an outraged public was Marcel Duchamp's 'Nude Descending a Staircase.' Featuring a previously unknown illustrated talk by Duchamp (recorded by the producer), the film presents the dramatic history behind the infamous show, including rare archival photographs of the event.
