Building Bastille – The Improbable Story of the Paris Opera 

A half a billion dollar project, a crushing architectural challenge and impossible deadline, two warring political titans and an architect who has never built anything. What could go wrong? From political intrigues and personal costs to Pavarotti and opera’s brightest stars, again and again, nothing is what it seems. BUILDING BASTILLE is a feature-length documentary that tells the comic, dramatic and tangled story of modern history’s greatest case of mistaken identity and seized opportunity, combining current footage with archival images and original 16MM film.
