When a Vienna museum guard befriends an enigmatic visitor, the grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum becomes a mysterious crossroads which sparks explorations of their lives, the city, and the ways artworks reflect and shape the world. Jem Cohen's "Museum Hours" is one of the most critically-acclaimed works in years. One of American cinema’s leading experimental filmmakers, Cohen worked with a skeleton crew. He used only existing natural and artificial light for shooting, and before production began, shot for weeks on the streets of Vienna with a wind-up 16mm Bolex. Conversations between actors are often improvised.
