Saving the Met

3 x 60

Saving the Met is a three-part observational documentary series that begins as the largest art museum in the Americas prepares to celebrate its 150th birthday with a treasure-trove of landmark exhibitions. Then Covid strikes. Within a week of the grand opening, for the first time in its history, the Met closes its doors. Then comes another whirlwind: in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, there are urgent demands for social justice. Throughout this rollercoaster year, we’ve had unprecedented access from boardroom to basement. Unsure of when it can reopen, uncertain about how to keep afloat financially, and questioning its very purpose, Saving the Met reveals a great institution at bay as its 150th birthday makes history in ways no one could have predicted.
