Captured from within the inferno of France’s most beloved cathedral, Notre-Dame: Our Lady of Paris is a remarkable documentary about the harrowing fire that nearly destroyed 900 years of history. Told through first-hand accounts from the firefighters, clergy, and local officials from the front lines, this special takes us back to April 15, 2019 when the whole world watched in real time as the fire raged for over 15 hours. To save one of the world’s most cherished monuments and rescue some of Christianity’s most priceless and revered relics, 500 Parisian firefighters risked their lives.
