A compelling documentary for anyone working in museum related fields. It documents the ambitions, trials and tribulations faced by ROM director William Thorsell and architect Daniel Libeskind as they develop their vision for a new museum. Its an eye opener to see the disconnect between their vision and the needs and desires of museum staff and the public.
