With a Skype introduction by director Frederick Wiseman

Presented in collaboration with Esopus

Dir. Frederick Wiseman. 1969, 84 mins. 16mm. The innovative multidisciplinary magazine Esopus, founded and edited by Tod Lippy, explores themes through a wide range of creative disciplines. A selection of 100 frames from Fred Wiseman’s documentary Hospital will be featured in the upcoming Esopus 22: Medicine. To celebrate the publication, the Museum and Esopus present a rare 16mm screening of Hospital, preceded by a live Skype introduction by Wiseman. Of this study of a large New York hospital, film critic Pauline Kael wrote “It is as open and revealing as filmed experience has ever been.”
