An American Journey

Dir. Philippe Séclier (2009). Made to commemorate the golden anniversary of Robert Frank’s The Americans, this hour-long doc treats the book as a sacred text. French filmmaker Séclier searches for relics, revisiting Frank’s locations and interviewing surviving subjects. Typically, they had no idea that they had been photographed let alone immortalized. Rounding out the bill is In the Street, a collaborative work shot in the mid ‘40s by street photographer Helen Levitt and one of the greatest 15 minutes in cinema.
