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

Rescheduled from February 5.
