“What Robert Frank’s The Americans did for the nation, presenting the post-war United States with an X-ray of its soul, the free-form, intensely personal films he started making a few years later did for New York City.” (Vogue) Photos from The Americans (1958), capturing poverty and racism; his 70s Polaroids with hand-scrawled captions; and Frank’s films of beats, vagabonds and the Rolling Stones are set against a soundtrack of Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, White Stripes, Yo La Tengo, and Tom Waits in this major documentary of the Swedish émigré artist (now 93).
