Ex Libris: The New York Public Library

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.
