Frederick Wiseman’s SINAI FIELD MISSION – Followed by a conversation between Wiseman and Errol Morris

STREAMING in our Virtual Screening Room starting October 28th at 10 AM

General Admission $8

The Cinema Arts Centre is pleased to offer a special online series of films and conversations from the American documentarian Frederick Wiseman. Sinai Field Mission is the second installment in this three-week series leading up to our online run of Wiseman’s latest picture, City Hall. 

SINAI FIELD MISSION documents the routine activities of the diplomats and electronic technicians who operate the United States Sinai Field Mission, the early warning system established in 1976 to help carry out the disengagement agreement between Egypt and Israel following the 1973 war. (1978, USA, 127 min, English | dir. Frederick Wiseman)

The film is followed by a conversation between Wiseman and Academy Award-winning film-maker Errol Morris.

Wiseman gives us a community. We sense the isolation, the harsh climate, the numbing drudgery of the paperwork… by filming the story of Sinai Field Mission from the inside out, by incorporating all of the elements that make it up rather than a rote narrative of what it does and how it came to be, Frederick Wiseman has once again brought an issue into focus. And we know and care a little bit more because of it. – James Brown, Los Angeles Times
