Kwiatek appeared in the film Hidden Treasures: Stories from a Great Museum, directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Alexandra M. Isles. Here is an excerpt:
Hidden Treasures: Stories from a Great Museum, directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Alexandra M. Isles, is a distinctive and truly worthwhile documentary. It highlights many precious artifacts of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. The twist, however, is that this virtual tour of the museum is told from the perspective of the staff entrusted to care for the museum’s world-class artifacts, as opposed to the professional academicians or art-critics who so often dominate topics of this nature. Somehow this brings the objects to life in a surprisingly magical way.
