Wexner Center Film/Video Theater
The Wexner Center for the Arts presents
Frederick Wiseman x 3
“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
Filmed at New York City’s bustling Metropolitan Hospital, Wiseman’s Hospital paints a compelling and poignant portrait of how the individual (patient, nurse, doctor) functions within the bureaucracy of a large caregiving institution. Now 46 years old, the film includes the still-familiar scene of a woman being denied coverage due to a preexisting condition. (84 mins., 35mm)
