Description
Oscar winner and UW-Madison alum Errol Morris’s (The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) latest documentary focuses on Cambridge, MA photographer Elsa Dorfman. Using a rare, large-format Polaroid camera, Dorfman has snapped decades worth of family portraits, as well as many of her close friend Allen Ginsberg. This affectionate dialogue between two master portraitists explores the methods with which one can use film to capture a subject’s distinctive personality.
