Heaven Carved From Stone

Film "Heaven carved from stone"
Frédéric Gersal, history and heritage chronicler on France 2 TV, uses images to relate the history of the UNESCO Cathedral, from its birth to the current building. He presents a building that is unique in Europe in terms of its extraordinary design, size and architecture.

As the Cathedral has been undergoing renovation works, this film allows the spectator to see the most discreet and intimate parts of the monument by going behind and to the very top of the scaffoldings. The aerial views of this medieval architectural jewel and the 3D techniques used in the film enable the spectator to complete the visit to the site.
