COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Tourné sur douze ans, Concert of Wills raconte la conception, la construction et l'achèvement du Getty Center. Le film dévoile un processus créatif en action, où différentes philosophies esthétiques se rencontrent et sont défendues avec passion.

This documentary traces the building of the Getty Center, one of the most ambitious cultural undertakings of the twentieth century. Spanning fourteen years, from the early blueprints to the groundbreaking to the public opening of the Center in December 1997, the film takes viewers from California to a rock quarry in Italy where the Center's signature travertine originated. The gathering of creative personalities needed to complete this monumental complex gave rise to conflict as well as consensus, to tension as well as resolution. Concert of Wills looks behind the scenes and chronicles intimate moments of success as well as frustration and heated debates.
