Information about director

Frederick Wiseman

Born in 1930, Documentary filmmaker, acclaimed for his portraits of American public institutions and the mechanisms underpinning various systems, e.g. school and prison, or industries, e.g. food, entertainment, and healthcare. Wiseman has honed his specific filmmaking model over many years, where he collects about 100 hours of footage shot without a script, does not interview his subjects, does not dub music or voiceover. Only the images and editing matter, on which he spends an entire year. Wiseman’s films have received awards at festivals in Venice, Cannes, and Berlin. Reminiscent of visual essays, they are recognized documentary classics.
