Director Laura Israel's portrait of her friend and collaborator, Swiss-born Robert Frank, is a lively mix of images, sounds, and recollected passages. Frank’s The Americans (1958) is perhaps the most influential photography book of the 20th century. Israel and editor and art director Alex Bingham will be in attendance
NR, 2015, 82 minutes
"Robert Frank is gloriously notorious. He is the groundbreaking photographer of The Americans; the iconoclastic director of Pull My Daisy and Cocksucker Blues; a difficult (almost impossible) interview subject; a rejecter of wealth and celebrity; a man whose ‘sympathies were with people who struggled,’ who has a ‘mistrust of people who made the rules.’" - Courtney Reid-Eaton, Full Frame Documentary Festival
