By day, Andrew Shea is an associate professor in the department of Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas.

He also practices what he preaches as the director of the new feature film "Portrait of Wally."

The documentary traces a long-running conflict over a painting that was looted by the Nazi's in 1939, and a landmark legal battle over restitution to the heirs of the portrait's original owner.

"Portrait of Wally" is now showing in Austin at Violet Crown Cinema.

YNN's Victor Diaz has more with director Andrew Shea in the video above.
