FRANCOFONIA is the story of two remarkable men, Louvre director Jacques Jaujard and Nazi Occupation officer Count Franziskus Wolff-Metternich - enemies then collaborators - whose alliance would be the driving force behind the preservation of museum treasures. FRANCOFONIA explores the relationship between art and power, the Louvre museum as a living example of civilization, and what art tells us about ourselves even in the midst of one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen. Francofonia | Documentary | France / Germany / Netherlands , 2015 | 85 min Alexander Sokurov Casting Benjamin Utzerath, Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Vincent Nemeth
