It was an audacious and puzzling art theft. In 1985, Willem de Kooning’s “Woman-Ochre,” one of the most valuable paintings of the 20th century, vanished into the Arizona desert after being cut from its frame at the University of Arizona Museum of Art. Thirty-two years later, the $160 million painting was rediscovered in the unlikeliest of places.

The Thief Collector is Allison Otto’s first feature documentary. Her short, The Love Bugs, was awarded Best Short Documentary in the 42nd Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards. Her first film, Keeper of the Mountains was named “One of the Best Adventure Films of 2013” by Outside magazine.
