Presented in partnership with the CAC.
"Museum Hours" is a mesmerizing tale of two adrift strangers who find refuge in Vienna’s grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum. Johann, a museum guard, spends his days silently observing both the art and the visitors. Anne, suddenly called to Vienna from overseas, has been wandering the city in a state of limbo. 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.

"Quietly amazing, sneakily sublime. This movie is rigorously and intensely lifelike, which is to say that it's also a strange and moving work of art" – AO Scott, The New York Times
