National Gallery

A National Gallery Restorer at Work

Clip | 37s

"In an abstract way the film tries to compare different ways of telling a story. Every form, whether it be a painting, movie, dance, play, poem, or novel, is different. The abstract issues–characterization, passage of time, creation of metaphor–are the same. NATIONAL GALLERY, in an abstract way, tries to suggest how these common issues are dealt with in different forms, particularly in film."
