Henri Cartier-Bresson: L’amour tout court, di Raphael O’Byrne, 2001, 70’ “What matters is to look. Most people don’t look, they press the button, they identify” – says Henry Cartier-Bresson at the beginning of this documentary. “What should they look?” – asks the interviewer. “This is the question” – replies the artist. A question that is the key of his photography during a century-long life, in which he was a traveller, a member of the Resistence and the founder, with Robert Capa and David Seymour, of the famous Magnum Photos. L’Amour tout court delves into Cartier-Bresson’s photographic vision and practice, but it also explores the influence he had on colleagues and artists from different disciplines such as cinema, painting and music.

Eloquent Nude: The Love and Legacy of Edward Weston and Charis Wilson, di Ian McCluskey, 2007, 57’ When Edward Weston and Charis Wilson met, they fell instantly in love. Setting off across the West with camera and typewriter in the depths of the Great Depression, they transformed photography, and each other. Now age 90, Charis Wilson recounts her years with Weston with great humor, candor, and some regret. Combining insight from leading scholars, rare archival images, and convincingly authentic reenactments, Eloquent Nude presents a remarkable true story of love and loss, travel and adventure, and an intimate look at the making of Modern photography.
