The Frederick Wiseman library has been added to Kanopy.

[... with captioning, which I wasn't expecting!]

Well, the good news I can report is that the Ex Libris BD-R does play in both of my players (Seiki blu & Sony UHD), which is an improvement from the La Danse BD-R that played in absolutely nothing.

Wiseman’s latest, Ex Libris, about the New York Public Library, is currently available to watch free on the PBS website and app. Will probably be available only for a week or two.

Odd that the Zipporah website has not been updated to acknowledge the existence of Monrovia, Indiana or any of its high-profile festival screenings.

Great movie, of course, but so much of it is dedicated to the most annoying people imaginable. I wish it had less of the people giving talks which only worked a couple of times and more emphasis placed on the employees or the disparity between the different branches. That later quality especially really made the film into a powerful and engaging look into now.

Very surprised there is not a Frederick Wiseman topic in the Filmmakers forum here.

Figured I would share the news that PBS is streaming Monrovia, Indiana until the end of the month.

Should be here..

Ultimately, I would not place this in his best works but it still has it's moments and shows much worth thinking and discussing over.
