Legendary documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman returns with this epic exploration of the New York Public Library. Over three hours long, Wiseman looks at every aspect of this historic institution: the divide between the rich and the poor, the evolution of technology and the changing perceptions of the library, as well as zooming in on various individual patrons.
Featuring special appearances from Ta-Nehisi Coates, Elvis Costello, Richard Dawkins, Edmund de Waal, Carolyn Enger, Miles Hodges, Wiseman proves that he is still the master of the American documentary.
