Experiencing Interruptions?

To become what it is- Conversion years in the Modern Gallery of the Saarlandmuseum

A museum experiences a big hullaballoo: A huge construction site with dirt, noise and mud, including oeuvres from Picasso and Franz Marc. But in the midst of all this chaos, thanks to two years of quietly observing the proceedings with the camera in Direct Cinema style, we witness precision and accuracy, a strong team spirit, real beauty and subtle humor – a story about people who dedicate their lives to their museum.
