LIVE from the NYPL | Frederick Wiseman with Errol Morris: Masters of Documentary

Filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, who in 2016 was awarded an honorary Academy Award, has turned his camera on institutions as varied as an insane asylum, a high school, a ballet company, a university, and a museum. His latest film, Ex Libris -The New York Public Library, is a panoramic portrait of the iconic institution, so there couldn’t be a better place for him to discuss it than on LIVE from the NYPL’s stage. And what better interlocutor than Errol Morris, the Oscar-winning filmmaker for whom Wiseman is an “idol”? Join us for their far-reaching discussion about the potential of film to reveal the essence of an institution like The New York Public Library, and so much more. Clips will be shown.
