The Complete Film Works [3 DVD. Pull my Daisy, The Sin of Jesus, Me and My Brother]

Robert Franks significant contribution to photography in the mid-twentieth century is unquestionable. His book, “The Americans”, is arguably the most important American photography publication of the post-World War II period, and his photography has spawned numerous disciples, as well as a rich critical literature. However, at the very moment Frank achieved the status of a star at the end of the 1950s, he abandoned traditional still photography to become a filmmaker. He eventually returned to photography in the 1970s, but Frank, as a filmmaker, has remained a well-kept secret for almost four decades. “Robert Frank: The Complete Film Works” fills a long overdue gap by presenting every one of Frank’s more than 25 films and videos, some of them classics of the New American Cinema of the 1950s and 60s. Volume I features a booklet with essays and photos, as well as a DVD.
