Anyone want to join me for this film?
The description from the website:
"One of the preeminent moving-image artists working today, Jem Cohen has long blurred the line between the gallery and the cinema, so it’s only fitting that his uniquely pleasurable new documentary/fiction hybrid should do the same. Set largely within the Kunsthistorisches Art Museum in Vienna, Museum Hours focuses on Johann, a museum guard, and Anne, a visitor to the country who’s in town tending to a sick friend. Finding refuge in the museum during her many hours alone in a strange city, Anne gradually befriends Johann. As they admire the paintings by the Old Masters that adorn the museum walls, the unlikely friends reflect on how artworks can infuse and shape their daily experiences - and perhaps even change their lives."
The film is at 7pm. Meetup time is 6:45pm in the main lobby of the Garneau. I will have a bouquet of flowers with me so that you can spot me.
