GREGORY CREWDSON: BRIEF ENCOUNTERS

Director Ben Shapiro joins us via Skype for a Q&A after the film!

Cinematography by Ben Shapiro
Editing by Nancy Kennedy, Tom Patterson, and Ben Shapiro
Original music by Dana Kaproff
USA, 2012, Zeitgeist Films, BluRay, color, 78 min.

“Filmed over a decade, Brief Encounters follows internationally renowned photographer Gregory Crewdson’s quest to create his unique, surreal, and incredibly elaborate portraits of suburban life. He sets a house on fire, builds 90 foot sets with crews of sixty, shuts down city streets...all in the service of his haunted image of American life, and his own anxieties, dreams and inner desires. Brief Encounters is an intimate portrait of one of the most heralded image-makers of our time.” – IMDB

“CRITICS' PICK! With marvelous discipline, Mr. Shapiro crams a wealth of material into a tight 77 minutes, smoothly communicating the group effort required to achieve the perfect shot.”
- Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
