Frederick Wiseman's Public Housing for Architecture on Film

Frederick Wiseman is widely acclaimed as one of the world's greatest documentary film makers and Public Housing one of his greatest works. In it the director turns his lens towards the community of Chicago’s Ida B. Wells housing estate. A portrayal of architecture in both its physical and social forms, the film observes the estate’s residents as characters in an urban set, in an unfolding conversation with their environment.

Tickets are on sale now. There is also still a chance to secure a seat to November's Architecture on Film, a unique doublebill, which goes inside the Metropolitan mind, featuring Oliver Payne and Nick Relph's Driftwood and Patrick Keiller's London. Patrick Keiller will be joining us for a Q&A after the screening.
