Frederick Wiseman Master Class (Off-site at The Vista)

This event will take place off-site, at The Vista (4473 Sunset Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027).

As we embark on the first installment of our four-year complete retrospective of Frederick Wiseman’s work, the filmmaker will join us IN PERSON for a master class. With a filmography spanning four decades, Wiseman is among the greatest living documentary filmmakers. His films are renowned documents of American institutions — a hospital, a high school, a welfare center — and an incredible record of the post-war Western world. But, in his words, “documentaries, like theatre pieces, novels or poems are forms of fiction.” With this in mind, Wiseman will discuss his process and films alongside excerpts from his work, in this rare opportunity to interface with the man behind the curtain.
