Set against the backdrop of the Louvre Museum's history and artworks, master director Alexander Sokurov (RUSSIAN ARK) applies his uniquely personal vision onto staged re-enactments and archives for FRANCOFONIA, a fascinating portrait of real-life characters Jacques Jaujard and Count Franziskus Wolff-Metternich and their compulsory collaboration at the Louvre Museum under the Nazi Occupation. These two remarkable men - enemies then collaborators - share an alliance which would become the driving force behind the preservation of museum treasures. In its exploration of the Louvre Museum as a living example of civilization, FRANCOFONIA is a stunning and urgently relevant meditation on the essential relationship between art, culture, and history.
