In the early 1980s, the Louvre underwent major expansion work and this film documents the renovation process and the daily lives of the museum staff. From the curators’ meticulous curation and the cleaners scrubbing the panes of the glass pyramid, to restoring the art pieces and conducting fire safety training, one gets to see what goes on behind the scenes of the museum exhibitions.
As a child, Nicolas Philibert (born 1951) used to sit in on his father’s film lectures before eventually deciding to be a filmmaker himself. In 1970, at the age of 19, he started working as an assistant director; in 1978, he directed his first film and in the early 1980s, he began making feature documentaries that were catered for the cinema while working as a cinematographer and film editor at the same time. He has produced over 40 television works and feature documentaries including The Louvre City (1990), In the Land of the Deaf (1992), To Be and To Have (2002) and Each and Every Moment (2018).
