Don’t miss acclaimed director Vanessa Engle’s extraordinary new BBC documentary at this exclusive Member preview

Members have a unique opportunity to see an advance preview of The $50 Million Art Swindle before it is shown on BBC Television. The film will be introduced by Mark Bell, BBC Arena Commissioning Editor, and followed by a Q&A with director Vanessa Engle led by journalist Rachel Cooke.

This feature-length documentary tells the remarkable story of New York art dealer Michel Cohen. Cohen swindled over $50 million from the art world in the 1990s before going on the run. Eighteen years later, Vanessa Engle has tracked him down and persuaded him to tell his story. This highly entertaining crime caper is a rich tale of greed, motive and morality.
