Date modification: Due to unforeseen circumtances, the film will be screened on the 20th of July at 7pm.

In the heart of the Louvre Museum, the Apollo Gallery offers a dazzling display of rich tapestries, monumental paintings, gilded ornamentation, and even the French crown jewels. Over time, water damage had ruined parts of the vaulted celing, and years of grime had dulled the magnificent paintings. Awakening Apollo chronicles the efforts of a team of 60 specialists who embarked on a three-year restoration project, which returned the Apollo Gallery to its former splendor.
