The inside story behind the Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million, claimed to be a long-lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci.

From the moment it is purchased from a shady New Orleans auction house, and its buyers discover masterful brushstrokes beneath its cheap restoration, the fate of the Salvator Mundi is driven by an insatiable quest for fame, money and power.

As its price soars, so do questions about its authenticity. Is this multi-million dollar painting actually by Leonardo or do certain power players simply want it to be? Unravelling the hidden agendas of the world’s richest men and most powerful art institutions, The Lost Leonardo reveals how vested interests became all-important, and the truth secondary.

Directed by Andreas Koefoed who has directed many award-winning documentary films with a focus on character-driven, human interest stories, including At Home in the World, The Arms Drop and Ballroom Dancer. His films have been selected for more than 150 film festivals and have won numerous awards at festivals including IDFA, CPH:DOX, Full Frame, AFI Docs, Sheffield DocFest and Tribeca.
