''Rescuing Memories from the Ashes''.

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. In the past 8 months, 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, as well as the importance of cultural institutions in preserving childhood memories.
