A brilliant new documentary about one of America’s greatest living photographers: Gregory Crewdson doesn’t just “take” his images, he creates them, through elaborate days and weeks of invention, design, and set-up. His 10-year quest to create a series of haunting, surreal, and stunningly elaborate portraits of small-town American life is filmed with unprecedented access as he makes perfect renderings of a disturbing, imperfect world.

Documentary director Ben Shapiro has devoted years of his life to capturing Crewdson’s method and soaking up the result on the big screen seems a fitting way to do justice to both his and Gregory Crewdson’s work.

“A refreshingly frank look at the artistic process, as comprehensive and lovingly realized as the work it pays tribute to.” — Filmmaker Magazine (US)

Released in: USA 2012

Running time: 78 minutes

Certificate: TBC

Followed by Q&A with director Ben Shapiro.
