Film Series: Museum Hours

2012. Austria/USA. Dir: Jem Cohen. With Mary Margaret O’Hara. 106 min.

A stranded woman forges a friendship with a guard at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum – two lonely souls meeting in a temple of beauty within the cold, dark city. Cohen ‘84 shines a light on a love of art that bonds people, feeding a compulsion to see beauty in the seemingly mundane that remains long after the film ends.
