CPH PIX: Museums Hours
Director: Jem Cohen; Austria, USA 2012: 107 min.
On April 12th and 20th, 2013 the Austro-American Film "Museum Hours", which received the ART CINEMA AWARD at the Festival del Film Locarno 2012, will be shown at the Dagmar Teateret.
Anne, a middle-aged woman, who has travelled from Canada to Vienna to visit her seriously ill cousin, meets the same-aged museum custodian Johann, who works at the vast Kunsthistorisches Museum in the heart of the city. They quickly become so comfortable with each other that he ends up showing her around the city. All things major and trivial are discussed in their conversations and musings, which are captured by the unobtrusive proximity of Cohen's camera.
