Overview

The Museum (2017)

Baton Rouge Jewish Film Festival

The Museum is a film that observes, examines, and ponders Israel's most important cultural institution, the Israel Museum. The film follows the visitors, observes the observers, listens to the speakers, and descends to the storerooms, labs and conference rooms. The American museum director, the singing security guard, the Jerusalemite curator, the Haredi kashrut inspector, the Palestinian guide, and the visitor who lost her vision are some of the characters that take part in a chain of activities which add up to the museum. For about 18 months director Ran Tal collected footage of the daily routine of the museum that seeks both to reflect and mold the Israeli legacy and culture. (From The Jerusalem Film Festival)

*The film is in Hebrew with English subtitles

Director: Ran Tal
