Don’t Blink – Robert Frank

THE CHARLES FALL REVIVAL SERIES & The Charles Theater proudly present, “Don’t Blink – Robert Frank”…



“This compact, fast-moving portrait of the artist proceeds through a flurry of images, many of them gleaned from (filmmaker and photographer Robert Frank’s) long and prodigious career. The man himself, barreling through his early 90s with a mixture of impatience, resignation and good humor, has spent a lifetime looking, mostly at North American people and landscapes, but also somehow inward, using cameras as instruments of documentation and introspection.” (A.O. Scott NY Times)

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this great documentary about the amazing photographer, Robert Frank!
