United States | 2013 | Frederick Wiseman
For his 40th feature, America’s foremost chronicler of U.S. institutions, Frederick Wiseman (Titicut Follies, High School, et al.), captures the inner workings and struggles of the University of California at Berkeley, a public university that is also one of the nation’s great centers of higher learning. Culling 250 hours of footage (shot over 12 weeks) to a mere 244 minutes, Wiseman shows how U.C. Berkeley is facing numerous challenges—from finite financial aid and massive cuts in state funding to campus protests and preserving the humanities in a high-tech world. A 2013 New York Film Festival selection. “One of Wiseman’s best.” –Variety.
