The Museum

This feature documentary follows William Thorsell as he sets out to renovate Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum. He thinks big, opting for a bold architectural gesture that will inject a shot of amphetamine into the staid and sensible veins of Canada's biggest burg. Enter Daniel Libeskind, the celebrity architect linked to the Ground Zero site and other prestigious building projects. Smartly tuned to contemporary debates on public architecture, The Museum charts their grand scheme in an entertaining tale of ego, art and steel beams.
