Directed by Errol Morris (USA, 2016, 76 min.).
Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid 20x24 camera. For the next 35 years she captured the “surfaces” of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts studio: families, Beat poets, rock stars, and Harvard notables. As pictures begin to fade and her retirement looms, Dorfman gives Errol Morris an inside tour of her backyard archive.
Screening in conjunction with the exhibition “Elsa Dorfman: Me and My Camera.”
