2016, USA, 76 min

“Errol Morris’s masterful and surprising new film is simplicity itself: a visit to the Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio of his friend, the 20×24 Polaroid portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman, who specifies on her website that she likes her subjects “to wear clothes (and to bring toys, skis, books, tennis racquets, musical instruments, and particularly pets…).” As this charming, articulate, and calmly uncompromising woman takes us through her 50-plus years of remarkable but fragile images of paying customers, commissioned subjects, family, and close friends (including the poet Allen Ginsberg), the sense of time passing grows ever more acute.”
-The Film Society of Lincoln Centre

Ted Baryluk’s Grocery / Directed by John Paskievich and Michael Mirus, 1984, Canada, 10 min / Best Short Film at the Canadian Genie Awards, this film profiles Ukrainian-Canadian Ted Baryluk, whose grocery store has been a fixture in Winnipeg’s North End for over 20 years.

Reviews

Dorfman’s story is the story of a woman who had the creative energy of an artist…In “The B-Side,” Morris creates a magnificent tribute to the art and technology of photography itself.
