Filmed over a decade, Brief Encounters follows internationally renowned photographer Gregory Crewdson’s quest to create his unique, surreal, and incredibly elaborate portraits of suburban life. He sets a house on fire, builds 90-foot sets with crews of 60, shuts down city streets… all in the service of his haunted image of American life, and his own anxieties, dreams and inner desires.
Director: Ben Shapiro
Art documentary | U.S.A. | 2012 | 78 minutes
Brief Encounters will be preceded by the fifteen-minute short The Joseph Szabo Project, a visually stunning first-person portrait of iconic photographer Joseph Szabo’s journey to capture the lives of his teenage students. Drawn from thousands of rare never-before-seen images and classic published work, this unique documentary is a time capsule of 1970s suburbia, an alternative yearbook filled with experiences that will resonate with anyone who has passed through the doors of high school.
