Mona Lisa is Missing

Joe Medeiros was the head writer for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno… he was also obsessed with the 1911 pilfering of the Mona Lisa right out of the Louvre!  That obsession led to his award-winning documentary, Mona Lisa is Missing. Joe will screen his film, unfolding the mystery of the daring theft and the discovery of the legendary masterpiece in the small apartment of the workman Vincenzo Peruggia. Why did he do it? That is what Joe spent more than 30 years trying to discover.

The screening and discussion with Joe will be followed by an Italian feast prepared by Feast Your Eyes catering.
