Directed by Oeke Hoogendijk. This four-part, four-hour, fly-on-the-wall documentary chronicles how a planned five-year renovation of Amsterdam’s famed art museum, begun in 2003, ballooned into an incredibly complex and expensive 10-year undertaking. Clevelanders should be able to relate. “An exemplary study in the sociology of art administration.” –N.Y. Times. “Hoogendijk has created an artifact that, 400 years hence, may prove as vital a window into Amsterdam culture as any of the Dutch masterpieces hanging in the museum itself.” –Variety. Cleveland premiere; shown in two installments.
Netherlands, 2013, subtitles, color, DVD, total 228 min.
