French documentary master Nicolas Philibert’s latest film is an engrossing look at the perpetually bustling Paris headquarters of Radio France (the Gallic equivalent of NPR), from the crack of dawn through the last late-night sign off. Covering all types of content from political reports to pop-culture commentaries, the film reveals the dedicated effort that goes into every minute of programing and all the faces previously left only to the imagination. Capturing the rich spectrum of cultural offerings broadcasted daily by the producers, guests, journalists, and show hosts whose work reaches thousands of ears every day, “La maison de la radio” takes us on a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of a cultural institution.
