RETURN
Legendary documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman returns with this epic exploration of the New York Public Library. Over three compelling hours, Wiseman looks at every aspect of this historic institution: the divide between rich and the poor; the evolution of technology; the changing perceptions of the library, and the individuals who participate in its vast operational structure. Featuring special appearances from Ta-Nehisi Coates, Elvis Costello, Richard Dawkins, Patti Smith, Edmund de Waal, Carolyn Enger and Miles Hodges, it finds Wiseman at his very best. ★★★★ "Inspiring" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★★ "Almost transcendent... absolutely fascinating" - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
