Film Series: Titticut Follies

1967. USA. Dir: Frederick Wiseman. Documentary. 84 min.

 Wiseman takes audiences within the walls of a Massachusetts hospital for the criminally insane using his signature observational style: no narrator, scores, interviews or explanations. Filmed merely by shadowing inmates and staff, the frequently disturbing results led the state to ban the film’s distribution for decades.
