What Visions Burn: A Spectacular $100 Million Museum Art Heist!

What Visions Burn: A Spectacular $100 Million Museum Art Heist!

What Visions Burn is an amazing animated short art film by the painter Ezra Johnson, which tells the story of a pair of cunning art thieves in New York City.  It portrays their audacious museum art heist and its aftermath, in which Johnson intertwines content with style for a unique take on the robber-film genre.  Johnson paints and repaints his canvases to create each frame of the film, providing a rich visual texture and continuity.  He uses the medium of painting to make a film about stolen paintings, and interjects newspaper headlines, made from newsprint collages, into the action.
