Isabelle Cornaro selects The Store (1983) by Frederick Wiseman to be shown in conjunction with her current exhibition at the South London Gallery. The film presents an in-depth portrait of employees and shoppers at the Neiman-Marcus store and corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas during the holiday season.


Although The Store stands as a single entity, Wiseman believes that it fits perfectly into his "institutional series", a collective look at places which he says are both common experiences in people's lives and are vital for the functioning of society.
