"The shooting method was to walk around filming events in the street, going into businesses (clothing stores, laundromats, bakeries, restaurants, supermarkets), religious institutions (mosques, temples, churches) and collecting sequences and shots that together totaled 120 hours of rushes. When I started I had no idea what the themes, point of view or length would be." ~ Frederick Wiseman
