Cityscapes: The Vienna That Never Was
dir. Jem Cohen, Austria/USA, 2013, digital, 107mins, color, German w/ English subtitles
filmmaker Jem Cohen's new feature, Museum Hours, is a mesmerizing tale of two
adrift strangers who find refuge in Vienna's grand Kunsthistorisches Art
Museum. A chance meeting sparks a deepening connection that draws them through
the halls of the museum and the streets of the city. The exquisitely
photographed Museum Hours is an ode to the bonds of friendship, an exploration
of an unseen Vienna, and the power of art to both mirror and alter our lives.
