About the Film
Going behind the scenes of Jerusalem’s revered Israel Museum, The Museum offers viewers an immersive exploration of Israel’s most important cultural institution. Filmed over eighteen months during the museum’s fiftieth-anniversary celebrations, cameras captured the daily routines of a cast of characters—including the museum’s director, a singing security guard, a Palestinian guide, and other staff and visitors—while peering into galleries, storerooms, classrooms, and offices. With surprising insight and unexpected humor, award-winning documentarian Ran Tal offers a striking reflection on the vast and diverse components of Israeli society.
