Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid Land 20x24 camera. For the next 35 years she captured the “surfaces” of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts studio — families, Beat poets, rock stars and Harvard notables. As pictures begin to fade and her retirement looms, Dorfman gives Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris an inside tour of her backyard archive. 

Screening followed by Q&A

“Dorfman was never a media or critics’ darling in the ranks of modern photography. This film will convince you that she deserves a higher position in the pantheon.” — The Hollywood Reporter

Dir. Errol Morris (USA, 2016, 76 min.)
