About the Film:

Directed by Frederick Wiseman. USA. 2017. Documentary. 197 min.

After covering Paris’s Crazy Horse nightclub, the Metropolitan Hospital Center, Nieman Marcus, and a boxing gym, Frederick Wiseman, 87, devotes his 42nd documentary to New York City’s library system, with a focus on the storied New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue. The great institution of learning is blessed with uniformly passionate staff and deeply loyal bibliophiles and beneficiaries across its 92 branches. The film reveals a venerable place of welcome, cultural exchange, and intellectual creativity. It also examines how the institution sustains its traditional activities while adapting to the digital revolution.
