40-minute audio-visual experience The Pulse of Time, bringing a story of humanity to life through an exploration of artworks from the museum’s collection, is being released by Louvre Abu Dhabi for free to coincide with its third-year anniversary on November 11.

The immersive piece’s storytelling, videography and original music composition will take you on a poetic voyage via the 12 chapters of the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s galleries, sharing stories of cultural connections from pre-history to contemporary times. The film will premiere on YouTube on Thursday at 7 pm in Arabic, 8 pm in English and 9 pm in French.

Emirati actor, producer and TV presenter Saoud Al Kaabi, known for his role in City of Life (2009), will narrate the Arabic; British actor, screenwriter and film director Charles Dance, known for playing the role of Tywin Lannister in HBO's Game of Thrones, will take on the English; and French-Swiss actress Irène Jacob, known for her role in Three Colours: Red (1994), narrates the French.

The film will then be available to stream for free on Louvre Abu Dhabi’s website starting November 12.
