In an event hosted in collaboration with the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, Frederick Wiseman’s remarkable 1970 documentary Hospital was projected in its original 16-mm format in the Museum’s main theater. The event was introduced by Wiseman via Skype from Paris, where the acclaimed filmmaker was in post-production on his 2016 film Jackson Heights.
