The acclaimed filmography of director Jem Cohen includes mesmerizing shorts, features, performances, and music videos. His latest feature, Museum Hours, is especially well-suited to screen at the MFAH.

Johann, a guard at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Art Museum, develops a relationship with Anne, an American new to the city who finds solace in the museum’s galleries. Their conversations evolve into a friendship as they discuss their lives, explore the city, and consider how art can reflect and shape daily experiences.
