Raymond Depardon’s brilliant self-portrait (co-directed by his longtime collaborator and sound engineer Claudine Nougaret) takes a surprising point of view on the great documentarian’s life—not only as a filmmaker responsible for such works as 10th District Court and Caught in the Act , but as a photographer of expressive precision, capturing the entirety of French society over the decades. The patience of this imagemaker’s practice is testament to an alternative to the hyper-fast, instant delivery of digital images that now dominates the culture.

“A comprehensive and intimate introduction to a major contemporary photographer-filmmaker… an enticing amuse-bouche to an artist whose body of work has become essential viewing.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Don’t miss this hauntingly impressionistic travelogue by Raymond Depardon.” – New York Post

Official selection, Cannes Film Festival.
