Ventura Friends of the Library and Museum of Ventura County are excited to present the Tri-County premiere of “EX LIBRIS: The New York Public Library” on Sunday, April 8, at 2:00 p.m. in the Museum Pavilion. Free to the public, the event marks the opening of National Library Week.
In this, the 42nd documentary by Frederick Wiseman (recipient of an Honorary Oscar in 2016), the legendary filmmaker brings his incisive vision behind the scenes of one of the world’s greatest institutions of learning, capturing the vast programmatic scope of NYC’s library system.
“In EX LIBRIS, democracy is alive and in the hands of a forceful advocate and brilliant filmmaker, which helps make this one of the greatest movies of Mr. Wiseman’s extraordinary career and one of his most thrilling.” –New York Times
