Due to numerous setbacks and lots of red tape, what was planned as a single docu­men­tary about the ambi­tious reno­va­tion of the Rijksmu­seum became an epic drama in four episodes with the suspense of a thriller. Five years after the projected opening, the master­pieces can be retrieved from the depot and Holland’s cultural trea­sury reopens its doors. With a keen eye to detail, Oeke Hoogendijk regis­tered and composed this report of a truly histor­ical renovation.
