Storyline

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 to both reflect and mold the Israeli legacy and culture. Written by The Jerusalem Film Festival

Excellent film. A behind-the-scenes look at the work involved in running a museum, but with a personal touch, as the director incorporates snippets of the background of the museum workers into the film, whether they be antiques restorers, visitors or the museum director himself.
