Cinema at the Museum I

Free admission

All three films ask the same question:  are museums important to those who visit them?

Two of the world’s greatest Art museums, the National Gallery, in London, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, in Vienna, are the extraordinary backdrops where three stories unfold about the life of museum artworks, visitors, and those who work there – weaving together the relationships between fiction and documentary reporting.
And what if we were able to step into a canvass and interact with the figures in it?  Are the things depicted by the Grand Masters so distant from our own lives?  We get a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes… and learn a bit about the holdings not on exhibit, the restoration experts, the curators, the gallery docents, and the guards – and we witness the epiphany of the visitors.

All three films ask the same question:  are museums important to those who visit them?
