Documentary
In National Gallery, the great Frederick Wiseman points his camera at scenes in a major London museum. As with his other documentaries, Wiseman humanizes the institutional process. We feel, in the details of the gallery, the life of humans—their eyes, their art, their movements, their sitting, their listening, their silent thoughts. There is no explanation for this documentary, no obvious goals, nor a narrator to guide us. We just watch and listen. Also, National Gallery is Wiseman's most beautiful documentary since La Danse, which is about the Ballet de l'Opéra National de Paris. (180 min.).
Director: Frederick Wiseman
Producer: Pierre-Olivier Bardet and Frederick Wiseman
