PLEASE NOTE
THE ORGANISERS HAVE CHANGED THE START TIME OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY DOCUMENTARY @BIN MATAR HOUSE.
IT IS NOW SCHEDULED BETWEEN 5.00PM to 7.00 PM (17.00 to 19.00hrs)

Documentary photography usually refers to a popular form of photography used to chronicle significant and historical events.
Join us for a screening of the Protected content film " Henri Cartier-Bresson-The impassioned Eye", a wonderful evocative biography of the man considered the greatest photographer of the last century.

Filmed only a few years before his death, this documentary by Heinz Bütler interviews Henri Cartier-Bresson late in life. Cartier-Bresson talks about his travels, including Mexico in the Protected content , World War II, being with Gandhi moments before his assassination, and returning to sketching late in life. He shows examples and talks about becoming and being a photographer, about composition, and about some of his secrets to capture the moment.

This event is part of an ongoing series of photography related movie night(s) organised by the Bin Matar House team. This screening will be followed by a brief discussion of the film, moderated by Camille Zakharia.
