Frederick Wiseman on the documentary form & Monrovia, Indiana


For over 50 years, Frederick Wiseman has crafted the finest of documentary feature films, from the disturbing classic "Titicut Follies" to his latest, "Monrovia, Indiana." Wiseman discussed with me his philosophy and technique of documentary filmmaking, as well as some specific thoughts about the film and the place Monrovia, Indiana. This discussion took place at Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, CA, during a Wiseman retrospective. (BAMPFA also has announced it will screen Monrovia, Indiana after its initial release.)
