Night at the Museum—2016 nationwide event at the Peter the Great Museum in Derbent

The night at the museum was devoted to cinema.  With the help of the interactive video installation from the OP Association, those attending could feel as if they were performing ‘inside’ the screen in films such as Kidnapping Caucasian Style, The Diamond Arm, Ivan Vasilievich:  Back to the Future, and Pulp Fiction.

The programme continued with the premiere of a film by Jean-Pierre Devillers and Pierre Pochart Illustre et Inconnu [The Man Who Saved the Louvre].  It recounts the dramatic story of the director of the Louvre who saved the museum’s collection from the clutches of the Nazis during World War II.  The film has been broadcast on dozens of television channels around the world and won the International Emmy Awards 2015 in the Arts Programming category.
