The legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman (TITICUT FOLLIES, WELFARE) has long been obsessed with inner-workings of complex institutions. Here he turns his camera on London’s National Gallery, introducing us to administrators, curators, teachers, and docents, all trying to keep a tradition-bound organization relevant in the 21st century. The result is more than just a kalediscopic portrait of a great museum – it’s also an exhilarating, visually ravishing inquiry into the enduring power of art to alight all of our senses.

In German with English subtitles.
