Ex Libris: The New York Public Library Instrueret af Frederick Wiseman
It’s not all pretty, or even always compelling, but it coalesces into no less than a testament to why we have societies in the first place. All together, maybe we can be better.

My film of the festival is undoubtedly Frederick Wiseman’s Ex Libris: New York Public Library. This documentary broke my heart multiple times and I wonder if I have the vocabulary to embrace it as fully as I’d like. Wiseman, with his incredible generosity, in his signature observational mode, taught me once again how to look.

The documentary’s title is a clever choice, allowing for several associations to pop up in your head once the film is running. Wiseman shows several different sites of the library, which is not at all connected to one place only. On the contrary, the New York Public Library has 87 branches and although Wiseman’s film is pretty long, it shows only a fraction of the work that is being done across those branches. And this work is impressive.
