‘Gloria Victis’ is a 5-minute film from Benjamin Bardou that is a montage of up-close shots from paintings, historical film segments from predominantely black-and-white film era, and ultra-contemporary digital renderings of the Cour Marly, one of the signature wings and destinations inside the Louvre.
