Visions of Reality: Werner Herzog & Frederick Weisman

“Documentary” means different things to different people. With the form expanding to include a host of work ranging from hybrids to docudramas, animation, essays, and reality soaps, to films with a strident point of view or work comprised entirely of reenactment and dramatization, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the documentary with two extraordinary filmmakers, Werner Herzog and Frederick Wiseman, with Moderator David Sterritt (film critic for the Christian Science Monitor), who will talk about their work and the new frontiers opening to nonfiction storytellers.

Note: no ticket is required for this event.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
