National Gallery

National Gallery: Trailer

Preview | 1m 52s

National Gallery journeys behind the scenes of a London institution, to the heart of a museum, filled with masterpieces of Western art, dating back to the Middle Ages. Frederick Wiseman's film is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film.
