Frederick Wiseman: Law and Order (1969) at Union Docs

Discussion with director Frederick Wiseman and Kent Jones Festival Director of New York Film Festival to follow the screening.

Against a backdrop of American cities riven by racial injustice and class inequality, soaring crime rates and unemployment, and a volatile mistrust of cops and judges, Wiseman made this thoughtful, measured, and often surprising film about the police department in Kansas City, Missouri.
