Frederick Wiseman’s new documentary Ex Libris: The New York Public Library is now playing in select theaters.

On this week’s episode of our podcast, you’ll hear the director discuss his films and creative process in two talks from our archives. First, Wiseman shares his thoughts on his work, the issues and implications of his films, and his process in a special master class from 2006. After that, the director discusses his 2013 film, At Berkeley, in one of our HBO Directors Dialogues from the 51st New York Film Festival.
