Artist as Filmmaker

Robert Frank's New York

San Francisco Art Institute

“Photographer (The Americans) and filmmaker (Pull My Daisies) Robert Frank confronts his environment with an intensity that is often hard to classify. He intuitively steers his work into uncharted waters…” (Philip Brookman, Corcoran Gallery) C’est Vrai is Frank’s single-take 60 minute video journey through the Lower East Side and his camera-eye, juxtaposing scripted narrative with street activity; Last Supper tells the story of a New York writer who fails to appear at his own book-signing street party.
