Accomplished documentarian Frederick Wiseman's first full-length film found him documenting the inmates at Bridgewater State Hospital, an institution for the criminally insane. The cinema verite project, initially sanctioned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, was later the subject of a court case due to the brutal and shocking portrait it painted of the government-run hospital. After a nearly 25 year ban, the film was finally allowed release in the 1990s. Not for the faint of heart, this important 1967 film screens today as part of the museum's An Auteurist History of Film series.
