Dialogue between the arts

Gabor Joannie Lafrenière

The first documentary feature by Joannie Lafrenière paints a tender and light-hearted portrait of her friend, the talented photographer Gabor Szilasi. Structured around a number of interviews, notably one between the filmmaker and the energetic, eloquent, insightful and inspiring man himself. This intimate and unconventional documentary revisits the career and personal history of a remarkably creative nonagenarian with a fascinating life story. The film is a journey through the past that remains firmly anchored in the present, much like the photographer himself, who passionately continues to capture the poetry of daily life in his adopted homeland as he has done over the past six decades.
