Description

FEATURING: ACADEMY AWARD WINNER JEREMY IRONS

On the occasion of the official 200th anniversary celebrations, this documentary is the first cinematic journey through the rooms, stories and emotions of one of the most visited museums in the world. Its wealth of more than 8,000 art treasures is a spell-binding experience drawing almost 3 million visitors to Madrid every year. Magnificent masterpieces tell the story of Spain and of an entire continent.

We are in one of the temples of world art. Its collection tells the story of kings, queens, dynasties, wars, defeats and victories, as well as the story of the feelings and emotions of the men and women of yesteryear and of today, whose lives are intertwined with the museum’s: rulers, painters, artists, architects, collectors, curators, intellectuals, visitors. This heritage is universal and includes the works of Vélazquez, Rubens, Titian, Mantegna, Bosch, Goya, El Greco, to name just a few. Oscar winning actor Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune, Damage, The Mission,Stealing Beauty, The House of the Spirits, The Correspondence…) will be guiding spectators on a discovery of a heritage of beauty and art.

Run time: 90 minutes
