The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

The New Rijksmuseum

Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015

05:00 PM – 07:00 PM

Renovation of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum started in 2003. From the beginning, the plan was opposed by unyielding counter-forces. Director Oeke Hoogendijk filmed behind the closed doors of the museum for 10 years. What was meant to be a standard-length documentary grew into an epic about ambition, love of art—and finally the historic and emotional “homecoming” of the masterpieces in 2013.
