THE NEW RIJKSMUSEUM

DIRECTOR: Oeke Hoogendijk - NETHERLANDS

“The renovation of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum went on for 10 long, expensive years, so it is fitting that a documentary on this torturous (and often inadvertently hilarious) process should turn into not one but two feature-length movies. Spanish architects Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz have designed an ingenious new entryway, but the Dutch Cyclists Union won’t tolerate reduced access for the 13,000 bicyclists who ride through the passageway daily. The museum’s magisterial director, Ronald de Leeuw, and his successor, the younger, scrappier Wim Pijbes, battle with curators, politicians, designers, city bureaucrats, and the public as the price of construction soars to $500 million. It’s a messy, complicated story, but fortunately, one with a glorious ending.”—Film Forum. “The New Rijksmuseum proves that films can describe nuances of character and situation as finely as the finest novel or creative nonfiction.”—RogerEbert.com. (240 mins.)

Filmography: The Saved (98).

Sponsored by Higgins. There will be a 10 mintue break at 4:30.
