"Ex Libris made the official shortlist for this year’s Academy Award. In it, Wiseman takes viewers into nooks and crannies of New York City’s Public Library system. The film may be specific to New York – but it resonates universally – and deeply.
Wiseman practices the highly disciplined technique of “direct cinema,” where he closely observes the people and places he films. He never uses interviews or voice over – you simply experience uninflected moments as the filmmaker does, unfolding before your eyes. I find this kind of filmmaking invigorating – and completely engaging as I am left with my own thoughts on how to perceive, interpret, and experience these multi-layered people, places, and situations.
