With “Ex Libris: The New York Public Library,” the 41st and latest documentary by Frederick Wiseman, making an Oscar run, the noted filmmaker’s entire catalog will start streaming in the coming months on Kanopy, a service that’s free to library card holders.
Outside of limited digital availability for some titles, it’s the first time any of Wiseman’s work has been available for streaming.
Wiseman’s body of work is practically a film school unto itself. Some of his most celebrated works are “At Berkeley,” “La Danse- Le Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris,” “National Gallery,” “Central Park,” “Titicut Follies,” “Welfare,” “High School,” “Hospital,” and “Belfast, Maine.”
After airing on PBS, “Ex Libris” will be available on Kanopy later this year — the only logical destination for a film about the New York Public Library.
