NYFF Live: In Conversation With Frederick Wiseman
Film Society of Lincoln Center, Amphitheater, Manhattan
Oct. 1; 7 p.m.

Director Frederick Wiseman will take the stage at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s amphitheater for what is sure to be a spirited Q&A about his latest documentary, “Monrovia, Indiana,” which premieres this Sunday as part of the New York Film Festival. While the talk, held in conjunction with the NYFF and moderated by the Film Society’s Ken Jones, is free, there are limited spots available in the 75-seat venue, so plan to get there an hour early for the first-come, first-serve, one-per-person tickets.
