Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival: "At Berkeley"
April 13, 2014
Isenberg School of Management
UMass Amherst Campus
The 21st annual Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival presents At Berkeley, directed by Frederick Wiseman (USA, 2013, 244 min).
Master documentarian Frederick Wiseman focuses on UC Berkeley during a period of economic crisis in his epic study of the life of an institution: its rules, principles, and ideas, and their connection to the lives of people who realize it, manage it, and depend on it. "At Berkeley" is a love poem to the idea of the university and the ways that universities both foster and compromise dissent.
Introduction by Carolyn Anderson, UMass
