Your Visit Starts Here — short documentary, 2015

Questioning the permanent proximity to the works of art, the documentary depicts the intertwined portraits of three museum guards of Centre Pompidou in Paris. 

While an average visitor spends around 4 minutes in front of a Picasso, a museum guard stands close to the same artwork all day long. Most of the time, these people remain invisible, living in the shadow of a masterpiece.  But who are they? What do they dream about when sitting on their black chair?
