The Center for Digital Imaging Arts (CDIA) at Boston University presents an Evening with Frederick Wiseman, arguably the greatest living documentary filmmaker.

“Mr. Wiseman comes to CDIA for a rare public appearance,” said Federico Muchnik, Director of Digital Filmmaking at CDIA. Muchnik continued, “Considered a master of his art, Mr. Wiseman has made 36 films in 38 years, many of them considered by documentary historians to be masterpieces of the form.”
Since his groundbreaking debut film in 1967, “Titicut Follies,” a harrowing, graphic portrayal of a mental hospital, Wiseman has examined human experience through his depiction of American institutions, including “Hospital,” “High School,” “Welfare,” “Public Housing” and “Basic Training.”
