The Great Museum - Thursday 21 November - 6:30pm - $10 Fundraiser
** All proceeds from this screening will be donated to Whanganui Regional Museum **
This feature documentary portrays one of the most important museums in the world: Vienna’s Museum of Art History or the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien. It presents a unique look behind the scenes of this fascinating institution and encounters a number of charismatic protagonists and their working fields unfolding the museum’s special world – as an art institution as well as a vehicle for stately representation.
Directed by Johannes Holzhausen this documentary is a slower style where the magic of the sights and sounds in many shots are given the time to develop, and reward the audience by turning their possibly mundane sequences into gems of cinematic beauty.
A must see for anyone interested in art, museums, curation of collections, and keeping them relevant for future generations.
Our high quality screener will be presented in German with English subtitles and English.
