Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters
Global Visions Film Fest Encore
USA 2012, 78 min, Digital, Dir: Ben Shapiro

An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life - moviescapes crystallized into a single frame. While the photographs are staged with crews that rival many feature film productions, Crewdson takes inspiration as much from his own dreams and fantasies as the worlds of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Edward Hopper and Diane Arbus. Shot over a decade with unprecedented access, the film beautifully bares the artist’s process - and it’s as mesmerizing and riveting as the images themselves.
