Films to Watch

“Night Watch” by Rembrandt, brought to life
The Rijksmuseum museum in Holland had an idea:
Let’s bring the art to the people and then, hopefully, they will come to see more – at the museum.
They took one Rembrandt painting from 1642, “Night Watch,” brought to life the characters in it, placed them in a busy mall, and the rest you can see for yourself!
