Review

Today, there are only a few directors making a documentary like Frederick Wiseman does. Wiseman does not give up the methodology of so-called Direct Cinema, which refuses a planned narration and is based on an instant approach to the target.

Under the crisis resulting from California´s financial trouble and reduced support fund, At Berkeley records not only the people from UC Berkeley but also the public education system run with the government support, democratic decision-making process, and the sacrifice of university members. At the same time, the film shows football games, marathons, and the tradition of leftist movement.

At Berkeley explores the flow on which today´s capitalism reorganizes education. This film´s positive attitude is expressed in Wiseman´s directing note as follows: “For a filmmaker, it is as important to make films about others´ failure, insensitivity and cruelty as to show a human´s intelligence, patience and good will.” This 4-hour epic documentary is the proof of such belief and an impressive record on how the Berkeley community maintains its dignity.
