Jem Cohen – Museum Hours (2012)


Acclaimed filmmaker Jem Cohen’s new feature, Museum Hours, is a mesmerizing tale of two adrift strangers who find refuge in Vienna’s grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum. Johann, a museum guard, spends his days silently observing both the art and the visitors. Anne, suddenly called to Vienna from overseas, has been wandering the city in a state of limbo. A chance meeting sparks a deepening connection that draws them through the halls of the museum and the streets of the city. The exquisitely photographed Museum Hours is an ode to the bonds of friendship, an exploration of an unseen Vienna, and the power of art to both mirror and alter our lives.

  1. For some reason this file doesn’t want to download. All other titles have been fine, but this one (despite repeated attempts) keeps resisting me. Any ideas?

  2. Thanks so much for posting! Any chance you might have the other shorts that came as extras on the blu-ray (Amber City, Museum (Visiting the Unknown Man), and Anne Truitt, Working)?
