Beaubourg, centre d’art et de culture Georges Pompidou (1977)

On 31 January 1977, the Centre George Pompidou opened its doors to the public in Paris. Three months later, on 6 May, Roberto Rossellini wrapped up the editing of a 54-minute film that testified to the public’s response to the project. The great Neo-Realist filmmaker was proposed by Jacques Grandclaude, spreadhead of the Communauté de Cinéma, to the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to celebrate the opening of the building designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers.

Director: Roberto Rossellini.
