The Museum

April 4, 7:35: Q&A with James S. Snyder, Director Emeritus of the Israel Museum

“A masterful view of the tremendous cultural institution.” (The Times of Israel)

Ran Tal’s (Children of the Sun) superb, lyrical new film provides an unprecedented look behind the scenes at the great Israel Museum in Jerusalem. This is not a traditional documentary about the history of a museum or its world-class collection of 500,000 objects (including the Dead Sea Scrolls); rather, it’s a poetic celebration of humanity and storytelling. Gorgeously photographed, poignant, and wry, The Museum artfully presents curated moments and details, introducing us to a diverse range of curators, artists, guards, and visitors from around the world, each with a story to tell.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)
