Directed by Jem Cohen | 2013

With Mary Margaret O'Hara, Bobby Sommer, Ela Piplits

“A delicate, quiet, sometimes gravely moving symphony of Vienna”
—The New York Times

Infused with a sense of wonder at art’s ability to console in times of darkness, acclaimed media artist Jem Cohen’s breakthrough feature film captures the beauty of Vienna in winter from the perspective of two unlikely new friends. A Canadian woman (singer-songwriter Mary Margaret O’Hara) visits an ailing family member and finds solace in the majestic Kunsthistorisches Art Museum, where she meets a soft-spoken middle-aged guard who offers to keep her company on her trip. As they stroll through the city streets, observing how the paintings of the Old Masters reverberate throughout the snow-covered landscape, their meandering conversation gives way to candid exchanges on art, grief, and love.

Producers: Paolo Calamita, Jem Cohen, Gabriele Kranzelbinder
