“There can be little doubt that Frederick Wiseman is the greatest American filmmaker alive … he is for modern U.S. cinema what John Ford was for the classical era.”—Cinema Scope

Legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman, subject of a 2006 Wexner Center visiting filmmaker retrospective, examines one of the world’s greatest ballet companies. A noted chronicler of American institutions, Wiseman here explores the all the aspects of administering the Paris Opera Ballet—including an extensive look at the vast Palais Garnier, Marc Chagall ceiling and all—focusing on the engrossing rehearsals for and performances of seven ballets.
