The Museum

The Museum

Director Ran Tal’s THE MUSEUM takes an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at Jerusalem’s Israel Museum. Tal, one of Israel’s most accomplished and creative documentarians, artfully captures moments and details of a day-in-the-life of the museum, introducing us to a diverse range of curators and artists, singing security guards and international visitors, a Haredi kashrut inspector and an American museum director, each with a story to tell. For 18 months, Tal collected footage of the museum’s daily routine, assembling it into a cinematic collage. Gorgeously photographed, poignant and wry, the film captures the vitality of the museum and the people inside.
