About the Film

Going behind the scenes of the revered Israel Museum in Jerusalem, The Museum offers viewers an immersive exploration of Israel's most important cultural institution. Filmed over the course of 18 months during the museum's 50th anniversary celebrations, cameras capture the daily routine of a cast of characters—the museum director, a singing security guard, a Palestinian guide, and other museum staff and visitors—while peering through galleries, storerooms, classrooms and offices. With surprising insight and unexpected humor, award-winning documentarian Ran Tal offers a striking reflection of the vast and diverse components of Israeli society.
