Métal Velours

Mathias Desmarres - Belgium
2017 — Documentary — English subtitles

On the jobsite of a famous opera house, workmen are both working and dreaming. While the interior of La Monnaie in Brussels is being entirely revitalized, the building’s essence is on display for those who labour there. The metallic sound of tools intermingles with symphonic fragments and when the light hits the plummer right, he looks like a leading man.
