Glasgow Zine Fest 2017

Sat 29 April — Sun 30 April 2017

Glasgow Zine Fest are pleased to present the Scottish Premiere of Laura Israel's critically acclaimed documentary on the legendary photographer & film maker Robert Frank.

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, from The Americans in 1958 up to the present, is intimately registered in his now formidable body of artistic gestures. From the early ’90s on, Frank has been making his films and videos with the brilliant editor Laura Israel, who has helped him to keep things homemade and preserve the illuminating spark of first contact between camera and people/places.

Don’t Blink is Israel’s like-minded 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 91.

This film is F-rated. Films are given an F-rating if directed by women, written by women and/or present significant female characters on screen, in their own right.
