Join legendary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, the master documentarian of our time, for a conversation with USC professors Michael Renov and Vanessa Schwartz. Incorporating short film clips, the event will look at the way Wiseman documents and analyzes the present while knowing that his films will become sources for future historians. Wiseman is the celebrated director, producer, sound person, and editor of 40 documentaries, from Titicut Follies (1967) to In Jackson Heights (2015). His three-hour tour de force National Gallery (2014) looks at the home of one of the world’s greatest collections of paintings and, more broadly, about the role of art and art institutions in modern societies. He is known for his direct, observational style and for providing visual studies of modern social institutions that do not pretend to be objective, but rather acknowledge the personal experience of looking, interpreting, and understanding. Wiseman is the winner of the George Polk Career Award for journalistic integrity and investigative reporting and the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement from the Venice International Film Festival, as well as Guggenheim and MacArthur fellowships. This event is presented as part of Making Visual History, a series of events exploring the intersection of the arts and humanities and the fascinating work of making history visible on screen.
