Dir. Laura Israel | USA, France | 2015 | 1hr 22mins

Northern Premiere 

A lively, stylish and organic portrait tracing the life and work of the world-renowned photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank, at times frustrating, increasingly poignant but always inspiring.¬† In between insights into an artist at work, Frank recalls his times with the Beat movement’s Ginsberg and Kerouac, talks about his many films including working with The Rolling Stones, and of course The Americans, his famous travelogue of the 1950s. Don’t Blink is packed full of a lifetime’s work and memories – including candid accounts of his family life and meeting his artistic kindred spirit June Leaf. The excellent soundtrack features The Mekons, The Velvet Underground, The Kills, The Rolling Stones and Tom Waits among others.
