Please join us for an evening with Frederick Wiseman. In our conversation with this award-winning documentary filmmaker, we will explore the creative process that drives his work, as well as his approach to our shared human experience. We will also watch excerpts from his acclaimed documentary EX LIBRIS and we will have the opportunity to ask him questions. A reception will be held in the Woolley Room immediately following the talk. This event is sponsored by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation through Wheaton College’s initiative on integrative learning in the humanities. All are welcome to attend.
