Alexander Sokurov | Ger/Fra/Nld | 2015 | 88m
Russian with subtitles
A portrait of the Louvre transforms into a magisterial, centuries-spanning reflection on the relation between art, culture and power.
June 1940: German troops march into Paris. Jacques Jaujard and Count Franziskus Wolff Metternich worked together to protect and preserve the treasure of the Louvre Museum. Alexander Sokurov (Russian Arc) tells their story. He explores the relationship between art and power, and asks what art tells us about ourselves, at the very heart of one of the most devastating conflicts the world has ever known.
