The New RijksmuseumA film that documents the massive renovations of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Even after extensive cuts, it’s a long film, but this allows it to capture the structuring apparatus of the institution while also presenting a variety of fascinating and humane portraits of the people living interesting lives within it.

The film captures the frustration involved in working with organizations that have become too massive to control but it also suggests the extent to which they reflect and protect the beauty of the odd people that work within them.

The uncut version of the film exists and when it circulates, I’m going to watch it.
