Starring: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Isabelle Huppert, Arthur Miller, Robert Delpire, Elliott Erwitt, Josef Koudelka, Ferdinando Scianna.
Heinz Bütler's HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON: THE IMPASSIONED EYE is a mature, evocative biography of the man considered to be the greatest photographer of the last century and the grandfather of photojournalism. Interviews with Cartier-Bresson himself, Isabelle Huppert, Arthur Miller and other cultural luminaries are woven into this indelible portrait of an icon of both photography and the world.
Henri Cartier-Bresson, the relatively reclusive master of 20th century photography and the grandfather of photojournalism, personally involves himself for the first time in a film project about himself in HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON: THE IMPASSIONED EYE.
The intense vitality and presence of Cartier-Bresson's recollections bear eloquent testimony to his "impassioned eye." An incomparable visual journey traces half a century of photographic assimilation of the world, exploring entire continents and introducing us to people, whose often delightfully humorous portraits by Cartier-Bresson, are frequently as famous as the sitters themselves.
Actress Isabelle Huppert, playwright Arthur Miller, publisher Robert Delpire and the photographers Elliott Erwitt, Josef Koudelka and Ferdinando Scianna present their own very personal views on Cartier-Bresson as friend and photographer.
