The first documentary film on the life and work of acclaimed photographer Garry Winogrand.​ Decades before digital technology transformed how we make and see pictures, Garry Winogrand made hundreds of thousands of them. When he died suddenly at age 56, Winogrand left behind more than 10,000 rolls of film—more than a quarter of a million pictures! These images capture a bygone era: the New York of Mad Men and the early years of the Women’s Movement, the birth of American suburbs, and the glamour and alienation of Hollywood. Forged by his own words and images, Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable is a stunningly intimate portrait of a man who both personified his era and transformed it.  “One of the rare art-world bio-docs that delivers the sensation of seeing a story unfold dramatically onscreen, Sasha Waters Freyer’s Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable introduces a compulsive picture-taker who was for a time hailed as photography’s essential artist, then saw critical opinion turn on him. Alert not just to shifts in the critical zeitgeist but to accompanying changes in social mores, the fascinating film speaks to the most sophisticated students of fine-art photography without alienating casual buffs.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
