Culture VR - L’homme derrière Notre-Dame

L’homme derrière Notre-Dame


L’homme derrière Notre-Dame is a privileged experience in the Notre-Dame Cathedral as it was before the 2019 fire.

« How does one become Rector-Archpriest of Notre-Dame? I would say, it’s a stroke from the Holy Spirit’s hand », warns Patrick Chauvet. Since 2016, the man is at thehelm of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Beyond the stunning sceneries and the exclusive access before the 2019 tragic fire, the documentary tells the story of the man who guides the cathedral through modernity, shedding lights on what it means to be a churchman in the XXIst century.



This film is part of the VR Selection of the Institut français, which offers members of France’s overseas cultural network (the cultural services of French embassies, Instituts français and Alliances Françaises) a selection of French virtual reality contents for non-commercial use, within their venues or those of their partners.
