THE COMPLETE WISEMAN
PART I EARLY WISEMAN

Friday, April 14 - Thursday, April 27

Fifty years ago, Boston lawyer Frederick Wiseman often took his students to the State Hospital for the Insane, to show them the kind of place “they might some day be committing someone to,” then decided to film it – and, sans music, titles or narration, he’s been unflinchingly showing us aspects of our lives ever since.

Titicut Follies, the James Sewell Ballet’s new work based on Wiseman’s landmark film, will have its world premiere at NYU’s Skirball Theater on April 28.

Titicut Follies, High School and Hospital have been preserved in 35mm by the Library of Congress National Audio-Visual Conservation Center, from original camera negatives in the Zipporah Films Collection.
