In 'At Berkeley,' a Top School Struggles to Fulfill its Public MissionDownload audio (MP3)
For more than four decades, award-winning filmmaker Frederick Wiseman has been producing verite-style documentaries that offer an in-depth, unvarnished look at American institutions. Previous films have examined a mental hospital, a police precinct and the fashion industry. His latest, "At Berkeley," is a four-hour exploration of public higher education set on the UC Berkeley campus. Wiseman and former UC Berkeley chancellor Robert Birgeneau join us to talk about the film.
