Film No documentary is objective. Even when a nonfiction film lacks narration, a storyline, or Michael Moore, someone has to decide what to leave in and what to leave out. In an age when documentaries continue to push for telling stories—easily digested, preferably with a theme of redemption, and accompanied by an insistent musical score, because the goal is to uplift and energize you—Wiseman stubbornly disdains all that.
His new film, Ex Libris: The sorting room at a public library is an amazing place. Periodically we listen in as library top brass debate attendance statistics and future goals, but we also eavesdrop on those manning the information lines—including one employee who blandly informs a caller that actually, unicorns never existed.
Although Wiseman spends a great deal of time at the grand central library in Manhattan, he also visits smaller branches, observing the people who try to solve issues of funding and relevance. Wiseman allows the film to stretch out to minutes, all without a conventional through-line.

Born in Illinois on July 23, , she grew up in Chicago, where she studied classical dance as a young girl. After her family moved to Florida, her innocence was shattered at the age of 16 when her father committed suicide. Her mother then told her that that man was in fact not her true father — and then kicked her out of the house forever. Bauman then spent several years living as a homeless drifter, traveling around the country and supporting herself by working as an exotic dancer.

His artistic work and close connections to those legendary figures felt important but there was a dark side. I began to crave a deeper understanding of my father, his work, and the circumstances that had robbed me of a normal relationship with him.

With the subsequent drop in water pressure, none of the hoses were effective, and the Great Seattle Fire destroyed 31 blocks. Pioneer Square had originally been built mostly on filled-in tidelands and, as a consequence, it often flooded. The new street level also assisted in ensuring that gravity-assisted flush toilets that funneled into Elliott Bay did not back up at high tide.
For the regrade, the streets were lined with concrete walls that formed narrow alleyways between the walls and the buildings on both sides of the street, with a wide “alley” where the street was. The naturally steep hillsides were used, and through a series of sluices material was washed into the wide “alleys,” raising the streets to the desired new level, generally 12 feet 3.
At first, pedestrians climbed ladders to go between street level and the sidewalks in front of the building entrances. Brick archways were constructed next to the road surface, above the submerged sidewalks. Pavement lights a form of walk-on skylight with small panes of clear glass which later became amethyst-colored were installed over the gap from the raised street and the building, creating the area now called the Seattle Underground.
The concrete floor of the former meat market was originally at the level of the wooden platform on the left, but sank over time because of decomposing sawdust fill.
