Laura Israel, 2015 82 minutes Canada, France, USA English 15 March 2017 no subtitles

Robert Frank revolutionized photography and independent film. He documented the Beats, Welsh coal miners, Peruvian Indians, The Stones, London bankers, and the Americans. This is the bumpy ride, revealed with unblinking honesty by the reclusive artist himself.

The life and work of Robert Frank - as a photographer and a filmmaker - are so intertwined that they're one in the same, and the vast amount of territory he's covered, is intimately registered in his now formidable body of artistic gestures. From the early 1990's on, Frank has been making his films and videos with editor Laura Israel. DON'T BLINK is Israel's portrait of her friend and collaborator, a lively rummage sale of images and sounds and recollected passages and unfathomable losses and friendships that leaves us a fast and fleeting imprint of the life of the Swiss-born man who reinvented himself the American way, and is still standing on ground of his own making at the age of 90.
