Join SOMArts and CaliberSF for a wonderful, evocative biography of the man considered to be one of the greatest photographers of the last century. Henri Cartier-Bresson’s life reads like a history of the 1900s – World War II, China, Egypt, Mexico, India, Sartre, Matisse, Ghandi (minutes before he was killed), and Cuba all became subjects of his famous “decisive moment” style. Interviews with Cartier-Bresson, Isabelle Huppert, Arthur Miller and other luminaries are woven into this indelible portrait of an icon of both photography and the world.
Arrive at 2:00pm and enjoy some delicious ice cream while viewing a slideshow of images taken during the SoMa photo walk in July. You can also visit the SOMArts Main Gallery for What Cannot Be Taken Away: Families and Prisons Project.
The film screening will begin at 3:00pm. Run time is 72 minutes. $10 suggested donation includes the screening and ice cream (cheap!). Space is limited and advance reservation is recommended (so we know how much ice cream to get). Reserve your spot online at http://somartsscreening.eventbrite.com/. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
A Henri Cartier-Bresson retrospective will open at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in October 2010.
