Henry Moore is Melting

Dramatic Thriller, 110 minutes

SYNOPSIS
Inspired by a true story. In 2005, a 2-ton metal sculpture went missing from the grounds of a museum near London, England. The perpetrators were no art thieves – they were travellers (Irish gypsies) who sold the priceless work for scrap. Henry Moore is Melting imagines the story behind the true-life heist, examining the consequences for one traveller who values art more highly than the bonds of his community.

Adapted from the stage play Henry Moore is Melting by Jenny Seidelman
