Rooftop Architecture & Design Film Series: The New Rijksmuseum

The renovation of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum was opposed by unyielding counter-forces, and Rembrandt’s palace was transformed into a building site for a decade.

Oeke Hoogendijk filmed behind closed doors to create this epic documentary about ambition, the love of art, and the typically Dutch decision-making process, culminating in the emotional homecoming of the museum's masterpieces. (2014, 130 min.)

Screening two nights, October 7 and 8.
Roof opens at 6:30P, film at 7:30P.
