The true story of the Louvre under Nazi occupation.

FRANCOFONIA is the story of two remarkable men, Louvre director Jacques Jaujard and Nazi Occupation officer Count Franziskus Wolff-Metternich – enemies then collaborators – whose alliance would be the driving force behind the preservation of museum treasures, saved during WW2 occupied Paris. FRANCOFONIA explores the relationship between art and power, the Louvre museum as a living example of civilization, and what art tells us about ourselves even in the midst of one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen.
