In 1911 the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre in Paris and the painter Picasso was accused of the crime. With Stravinsky's magical Suite from The Firebird as the soundtrack, this mystery comes to life through a cast of zany characters in Micah Chambers-Goldberg's 20-minute animated film, commissioned by Astral Artists in 2011.
