Description

Robert Frank, now 91 years old, is among the most influential artists of the last half-century. His seminal volume, The Americans, published in 1958, records the Swiss-born photographer’s candid reactions to peculiarly American versions of poverty and racism. Today it is a classic work that helped define the off-the-cuff, idiosyncratic elegance that is a hallmark of Frank’s artistry. The film itself is rough around the edges and brimming with surprises and insights, not unlike Frank’s own films. Don’t Blink includes clips from Frank’s rarely seen movies, among them Me And My Brother and Cocksucker Blues. The soundtrack includes Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Yo La Tengo, and Tom Waits. FREE.
