The Age of the builders – Notre Dame de Paris

Emmanuel Blanchard
Durée 2 x 45 min

In the Middle Ages, companions reinvent the art of building to build Gothic cathedrals. In Paris, a gigantic construction site will give birth to the most famous of these stone vessels: Notre-Dame de Paris.

Seven centuries elapse between the laying of the first stone and its restoration in the nineteenth century, during which the cathedral witnessed the history of France, in its moments of glory as in its darkest periods.

In this grandiose historical fresco, the breathtaking narrative of a documented fiction in 3D animation responds to documentary sequences devoted to the historical context and construction techniques to tell the fate of men and women who, driven by faith, ambition and the genius, first edified, then embellished and finally saved the cathedral of Paris.
