Frederick Wiseman Interview (At Berkeley)

Frederick Wiseman

Frederick Wiseman is a legendary documentary filmmaker, whose films of the last fifty years generally investigate a single institution each and include Titicut Follies, Hospital, Primate, Public Housing, and La danse. He would go on to make National Gallery and In Jackson Heights.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to talk to Mr. Wiseman at length about his latest feature, At Berkeley. The film had its North American premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and Frederick joined us at our studio in OCAD U’s Graduate Gallery to discuss public education, the dramatic structure of the film, the role of editing and much more.
