National Gallery, a film by Frederick Wiseman

Legendary documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman follows his acclaimed AT BERKELEY with another exhaustive and fascinating exploration of a vast and complex cultural institution.

Characteristically unconventional in its focus on the eccentric individuals who manage the gallery day-to-day, the film is at once a celebration of the works contained within one of the British capital’s most important artistic centres and also a kind of anthropological study of those who keep it up and running, from tour guides to high-tech restoration experts.

Essential viewing for lovers of art and art history, as well as of Wiseman's cinéma-vérité style.
