Stephenson and Richards will speak with Arezzo Moseni to explore the tensions and overlaps of art and journalism, and the relevance and necessity of both to our time more than ever."

Ex Libris - The New York Public Library

209 West Houston Street
New York, NY
"Frederick Wiseman cracks open institutions...and now-in his 43rd film in 50 years- the New York Public Library, an institution eminently worthy of his immersive style. If you thought libraries are just repositories for books, you're in for a big, wonderful surprise! The NYPL owns (and makes accessible) millions of images; sponsors lectures by people like Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, and Ta-Nehisi Coates; circulates a growing collection of e-books; maintains a vast archive of materials not available online; and gives classes in digital technology. The magnificent Stephen A. Schwarzman Building is the spine of the film, but equally vital is the role of branch libraries that act as community centers for civic life."
