Wiseman at Berkeley

Inside Higher Ed today alerted yours truly to a forthcoming Frederick Wiseman documentary on UC-Berkeley.  A lengthy article appears at:

In poking around on the web, I found earlier stories about the documentary such as this one from the NY Times:

If you are familiar with past Wiseman documentaries, they tend to be short on narration and long on meetings, interactions, etc.  “At Berkeley” will be released in November.  It takes place in 2010, i.e., during the budget crisis.  The film will be seen on PBS in early 2014.

Excerpts can be seen below:
