Film : Robert Frank , The films

I spoke already on the exhibition on Americans at the Metropolitan in New York but apart from the great event C/O Berlin will introduce the films series from Robert Frank, a retrospective on american daily life and all the contradictions of the
country. Here the presentation of the films series taken from C/O Berlin web site:
In his films, Robert Frank examines the public and private aspects of
American everyday life—the modern odysseys, the familiar
speechlessness, bacchanalian revelries, and sexual freedom—without
pathos, but with a touch of irony. Frank╩╝s films are unsettling
because they do not draw clear boundaries between genres; biographic,
documentary and fictional elements are seamlessly intertwined.
