In Paris, during the High Middle Ages, a vast construction project began. A project that heralded an architectural revolution and was to become the most famous cathedral in the world – Notre-Dame de Paris.
Now a meticulously-researched, superbly-directed documentary combines animation with archive material to tell the fascinating 800-year history of Notre-Dame and its forgotten builders, spurred by faith, ambition and genius to erect, embellish and preserve the world-famous architectural gem.
This documentary pays poignant tribute to the queen of cathedrals, using animation and archive material to recount its turbulent history.
