Directed by Frederick Wiseman (USA, 2013, 244 min.). DCP.
The University of California at Berkeley, the oldest and most prestigious member of a ten-campus public education system, is also one of the finest research and teaching facilities in the world. The film, At Berkeley, shows the major aspects of university life, its intellectual and social mission, its obligation to the state and to larger ideas of higher education, as well as illustrates how decisions are made and implemented by the administration in collaboration with its various constituencies.
“Frederick Wiseman’s At Berkeley isn’t only a study of the contemporary American university, but, like all of the filmmaker’s best documentaries, a wide-ranging inquiry into the larger institutions and contradictions that define life in the United States.”—Andrew Schenker, SLANT
