Screening & Live Event
With director Jem Cohen in person
Dir. Jem Cohen. 2013, 107 mins. DCP. With Mary Margaret O'Hara, Bobby Sommer, Ela Piplits. A Vienna museum guard befriends an enigmatic visitor, and 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 beguiling and unique blend of narrative, documentary, essay, art history lesson, and experimental film is a quietly profound contemplation of the relationship between art and life, a film that truly enables us to see in new ways.
