On September 2nd 2018, the National Museum of Rio de Janeiro was destroyed by a tragic fire, which burnt its 20-million archive to the ground. Since then, a team of scientists and researchers has worked tirelessly to rescue and recover pieces from the ashes, while dealing with limited resources and psychological trauma. This documentary is an insight into the experience of the museum’s community and the state of the building after the fire. It explores the social impact of the event and the importance of cultural institutions in the current political climate.
