Outstanding documentary
23 September 2017 | by mutanteradianteSee all my reviews

This is not the typical documentary about the life & work of a great photographer. Sure, many aspects of his life are well explained by himself, and also his work is shown in a splendid way, filling the whole screen on a gorgeous, sumptuous black and white.

But don't expect any encyclopedic approach to García-Alix works. Fortunately.

This documentary talks about life in itself. The photographer talks about small joys, great losses, grief... with a huge amount of sincerity, opening his heart in a poignant way. No tricks here, none at all, only a sincere labour of love from the part of the director. This is the kind of stuff good documentaries are made of. This, I believe it.

And despite the fact that almost all the cinema was full (Kursaal Cinema, 65th San Sebastian International Film Festival) being this a collective experience, I feel as a viewer that the documentary was only addressed to me. I'm sure that the same happened to many, many viewers.

Great artifact, a wonderful showroom for García-Alix's great work and also an in-depth view of his life.

There's darkness, of course, but thanks to the light.
