A Conversation with Frederick Wiseman


Location: Redstone Theater

With Frederick Wiseman in person

Join legendary Frederick Wiseman as he shows and discusses memorable moments from five films that comprise a small but formidable subset of the great filmmaker’s oeuvre: community portraiture. While best known for chronicling physically discrete institutions from the inside out, occasionally he has taken a similar approach to entire communities, exploring the lives, jobs, professional and personal relationships, and complex civic and class interconnectedness of neighborhoods and areas. Formally and tonally diverse, the films include Belfast, Maine; Aspen; Canal Zone; and In Jackson Heights. He will also discuss his upcoming film and latest of this ilk, Monrovia, Indiana, which opens on October 26 at Film Forum.
