Director: Matthew Mishory

2023, 127min.

Post-screening Q&A with Co-subject Joey Schoenberg.


History-obsessed Randy Schoenberg (memorably portrayed by Ryan Reynolds in Woman in Gold) brings his reluctant teenage son Joey along for the journey of a lifetime, through Europe and the centuries, to reclaim 500 years of their family story. Along the way, they encounter kings, mystics, and a false messiah — as well as numerous ordinary and extraordinary people who witnessed Europe’s tumultuous past. And the relationship between father and son is forever changed. Randy is renowned for recovering Nazi-looted art, but his greatest achievement might just be reuniting the fractured and scattered shards of his own family. Filmed on-location across Austria, Czech Republic, and Italy, Fioretta is “a meditative and intensely visual exploration…[filmmaker] Matthew Mishory reveals what history hides.” – Film Threat
