Frederick Wiseman film retrospective comes to Australia

Ten films are being presented across Sydney and Melbourne as part of a retrospective on US documentarian Frederick Wiseman.

An upcoming retrospective, It Takes Time: Ten Films by Frederick Wiseman, will spotlight US filmmaker Frederick Wiseman and his multi award-winning career that spanned more than seven decades. Ten iconic films have been selected from his body of work, which lasted from the sixties right through to 2020.

Wiseman is a filmmaker best known for his observational documentaries that study the inner workings of social institutions, such as hospitals, high schools, and police departments. His films are said to have offered a revealing perspective on humanity – and human endeavour – across the late 20th and 21st centuries.
