KCRW Partner Screening: ‘The Jewel Thief’
July 11, 2023 • 7:30 pm PDT
KCRW and Hulu invite you to a special advance screening of the Hulu Original Documentary, The Jewel Thief, followed by a conversation with director/producer, Landon Van Soest and producers, Josh Braun, Ben Braun, and Dan Braun moderated by KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis.
The Jewel Thief is the unbelievable first-hand account of Gerald Blanchard, one of the most creative, calculating, and accomplished criminal masterminds in modern history. With savant-like skill and a peculiar pride, Blanchard’s decades-long crime spree ranged from shoplifting to bank robbery to the theft of a royal crown jewel. Told through the first-hand account of Blanchard himself and the unlikely Winnipeg detectives who tracked him across the globe, the film presents an offbeat, rollicking journey through a series of increasingly elaborate heists as Blanchard seeks fame and notoriety through a life of crime.
