ON BEING THERE WITH RICHARD LEACOCK (WORK-IN-PROGRESS)

Showtimes

In this intimate portrait of Richard Leacock, Jane Weiner draws upon footage that she’s shot over 38 years of Leacock’s encounters with Henri Langlois, Chris Marker, Jonas Mekas, Ed Pincus, and others. Leacock reflects on his lifelong quest to capture a sense of “being there” and on his work with collaborators such as Robert Flaherty, Robert Drew, and D.A. Pennebaker. The film includes footage from his classic films and never-before-seen segments from his personal archives.
