By the Ways (A Journey With William Eggleston) (0+)

France, 2005, colour, 100 min.
Director: Vincent Gérard, Cédric Laty
“A journey across the south of the USA, homeland of William Eggleston, the father of colour photography. Eclectic characters. An arid land, where, for forty years, nothing has prevented this man capturing the ruins that claim to make its history. A visionary? An Italian episode reveals a character between Della Francesca’s frescoes and lifeless Rome: a portrait as Sherlock Holmes. The photographer, as an actor, plays on the knife-edge of some revelation foiled by a silence that defies any idea of truth. His old accomplices also float in the present world, finally accepting the reality that seems to supplant the said reality. Hence the photographs are scattered all over the floor of the film.”
