For over forty years, producer, director and editor Frederick Wiseman has crafted unique nonfiction films. Choosing institutions or groups as subjects, adding no interpretive voiceover narration, refusing to intrude with his queries, Wiseman delivers a fly-on-the-wall immersion. His latest documentary takes viewers inside Paris' Crazy Horse, described by the director as "supposedly the best chic nude show on earth."
Veteran documentarian Frederick Wiseman began crafting his unique films in 1967 with the controversial Titicut Follies about the criminally insane. Now in his 81st year, he continues to cast a fresh eye on the world with Boxing Gym which documents the diverse clientele training at the modest Lord's Gym in Austin, Texas.
