Described as a “poet,” an “athlete,” or a “philosopher” of photography, Garry Winogrand (1928-1984) harnessed the serendipity of the streets to capture the American 1960s and ‘70s. His Leica M4 constantly snapped spontaneous images of everyday people, from the “Mad Men” era of New York to the early years of the Women’s Movement to post-Golden Age Hollywood, all while observing themes of cultural upheaval, political disillusionment, intimacy and alienation. Once derided by the critics, Winogrand’s “snapshot aesthetic” is now the universal language of contemporary image making. The first cinematic treatment of Winogrand’s groundbreaking work includes selections from the thousands of rolls of film still undeveloped upon his unexpected death. Interviews with Matthew Weiner, Tod Papageorge and more attest to Winogrand’s indisputable influence, both as artist and chronicler of culture, and newly discovered audio tapes of Winogrand reveal his perspective. Forged by his own words and his compelling, beautiful images, this is a stunningly intimate portrait of a man who both personified his era and transformed it. Winner of the Special Jury Award for Documentary Feature at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival.
