"High School"

“Frederick Wiseman is a keen analyst of institutions…The method and substance of his analyses, though, is the proof of his genius. Wiseman…doesn’t so much film institutions as discover them.”—Richard Brody, New Yorker
Perhaps Wiseman’s best-known film, High School is a groundbreaking, intimate look at life inside a lower-middle-class school in Philadelphia. The film reveals an institution marked by burned-out teachers and administrators confusing discipline with instruction, and students being let down at every turn. (75 mins., 35mm)
