A movie about medieval art treasures that were looted by the Nazis in World War Two, and how they ended up in a small town on the Texas prairie will be the featured film of the Texas Arts and Music Festival in Brenham next weekend.
The movie “The Liberators” will make its Brenham debut next Saturday afternoon, October 21st at 2 p.m. at The Barnhill Center in the historic Simon Theater. “The Liberators” follows a determined German art detective as he travels through the New York art world and military archives trying to locate the lost art treasures. Film Director Cassie Hay will be at the showing to take questions from the audience after the movie. Tickets for “The Liberators” are $15 and are available online at www.thebarnhillcenter.com.
