Leading Israeli documentary filmmaker Ran Tal (Children of the Sun, The Garden of Eden) spent 18 months chronicling the Israel Museum, the country’s most important cultural institution. Roaming its galleries, storage spaces, labs and conference rooms, and speaking with an array of employees and visitors, Tal offers a rare look behind the scenes and presents the museum as a unique microcosm of contemporary Israeli society, which reflects its good, bad and rather absurd elements.

Nominated – Best Documentary Awards, Israeli Film Academy 

“There are all kinds of surprising people and moments throughout the film, which will make you want to go to the museum as soon as you can and which will change the way you look at the place forever.” The Jerusalem Post
