  • Year2019
  • Duration30 min

One of the world’s foremost portrait photographers, Brigitte Lacombe, is having her own documentary portrait made about her. As she candidly discusses her life and ideas with filmmaker Lynne Ramsay, we see Brigitte’s intimate process at work: the graceful movement from behind her camera towards the subjects she is capturing. Exploring the idea of family, some related by blood, others by sheer love. A conversation about making images illuminates the film’s deep monochrome mood and Brigitte’s directing gaze. We look at her looking.

Brigitte is screening alongside Medium in Sheffield on Sunday 1 November at 11:00am 



Brigitte is available on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects and Doc/Player from Sunday 1 November at 1:00pm until Thursday 12 November at 11:59pm.
