“National Gallery” explores the significance of the art museum in today’s word, introduces the roles of the staff and public and is essentially a portrait of one our most important existing cultural institutions. Wiseman previously directed documentaries “Boxing Gym,” “Crazy Horse” and most recently “At Berkeley.”
Zipporah Films will release “National Gallery” on November 5 at the Film Forum in New York.
