Legendary documentarian Wiseman (Titicut Follies, High School, Boxing Gym) turns his eye to the inner-workings of another massive institution: the public university. At UC Berkeley, professors, students and administrators struggle to maintain the school’s standing as one of the world’s best research and teaching facilities in the face of crippling budget cuts. Moving from the boardrooms to the classrooms, and filled with lively bull sessions, sit-ins and debates, AT BERKELEY provides a mesmerizing, wide-ranging study of the role of public education in the 21st century.
