First-time director Sara Nodjoumi teams with her husband and co-director Till Schauder to uncover the story of her father, seminal modern artist Nickzad “Nicky” Nodjoumi, who fled Iran after the vandalization of his 1980 exhibition criticizing the Iranian Revolution. Decades later, with Iran once again embroiled in protests, Sara and Nicky attempt to track down and reclaim the paintings he left behind. Equal parts gripping political thriller and verité portrait documentary, A REVOLUTION ON CANVAS uses the soul-searching of one family to expose the cultural and personal costs of political turmoil, exploring the power of art, sacrifice, and family bonds. An HBO Films release.
