FRA/GER/NED | 2015 | dir. Aleksandr Sokurov, with Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Benjamin Utzerath, Vincent Nemeth

Visionary director Alexander Sokurov’s captivating new film tells the story of two remarkable men during the German occupation: Louvre director Jacques Jaujard and Nazi officer Franz Wolff-Metternich. First enemies, their alliance was the driving force behind the preservation of the museum’s treasures. Exploring the relationship between art and power, Francofonia blurs the lines of fiction, documentary, memoir and video essay.
