The Museum

Thursday, May 31, 7:30 pm

Talk Back

Post-film conversation with Robert Engright, prominent cultural critic and founder of Border Crossings Magazine. Currently Robert is a University Research Professor in Art Criticism at University of Guelph.

This unprecedented look behind the scenes at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem isn’t a conventional documentary about the history of the museum, or its world class collection of 500,000 objects (including the Dead Sea Scrolls); it’s a lyrical work in and of itself, a poetic celebration of storytelling and humanity.
