Paul Dano, Venice floods and the impact on its cultural heritage, the department store in art
Paul Dano: we speak to the BAFTA- and Golden Globe-nominated actor about going behind the camera for his star-studded directorial debut, Wildlife. Starring Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal, his film focuses on a family in a small American town whose 14-year-old son must bear the emotional burden of his parents' marital troubles.
Venice: after the worst flooding in a decade - with waters reaching over five feet - what is being done to protect this world class cultural heritage site, its art and culture? We speak to Toto Bergamo-Rossi, Director of the Venetian Heritage Foundation, and to Mechtild Rossler, Director of UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre.
