Synopsis:
Pioneering documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman (Titicut Follies, Crazy Horse) has become the cinema’s great chronicler of institutions. With his characteristic focus on the human side of a large and complex organization, Wiseman trains his camera on the University of California, Berkeley during the fall 2010 semester. With unrestrained access, Wiseman goes inside classrooms and administration meetings to paint an engrossing, multi-layered portrait of an elite university in a time of financial uncertainty.
