Wavelength Pictures acquires “Portrait of a Gallery” for international sales

Following it’s highly acclaimed TV premiere on Ireland’s national broadcaster RTE, Wavelength Pictures has acquired the feature documentary "Portrait of a Gallery" for international distribution.   

For the documentary the filmmakers secured unique access inside the walls of the National Gallery of Ireland, the nation's most visited cultural attraction, while the institution underwent an enormous renovation project. This six year project involved closing and renovating the historic buildings which accounted for three quarters of its exhibition space, whilst at the same time attempting to keep a normal programme going in the remaining portion that stayed open to the public.

The filmmakers flip seamlessly between the partitions to observe the slowly progressing construction project which had to overcome many setbacks, whilst at the same time filming the ongoing routine of  exhibition openings and the daily stream of gallery visitors.
