Francofonia (2015)

Documentary, Drama, History 1h 25m

AroView: A richly evocative and insightful historical cine-essay from celebrated dir. Alexander Sokurov (RUSSIAN ARK) that charts the relationship between the Louvre’s artistic director and a Nazi Occupation officer.

Surrounded by the chaos of war and the strain of the Paris occupation, their collaboration makes for an extraordinary dance of diplomacy, one that was ultimately rewarded with preserving the museum’s priceless treasures.

“A fascinating essay and meditation on art, history and humanity’s idea of itself.” ~PETER BRADSHAW, THE GUARDIAN
