Dir. Frederick Wiseman. 1991, 146 mins. 16mm. A town famous in the nineteenth century for silver mining is now known for its scenic splendor, mountains, skiing, hiking, music, intellectual activity, and fashionable people. Wiseman’s wry and picturesque group portrait documents the daily life and activities of the people who live, work, visit, and play in Aspen, Colorado in the winter.
“Wiseman pulls us straight into Aspen’s dichotomous heart. There are few towns on earth so wrenched between nature and human artifice, Old West values and the whims of the superrich at play. An eyeful.”—Harry F. Waters, Newsweek
