“Leaving Home, Coming Home…A Portrait of Robert Frank” is a first ever, feature-length documentary about the legendary photographer and filmmaker whose work reflects his life in an unflinchingly honest way.


19.30 - 21:30 at The Regent Street Cinema

Shot in New York and the landscapes of Nova Scotia where he now lives, the film seamlessly interweaves between Frank at age 80 reflecting on a lifetime of image making and the richly textured photographs and personal films themselves. He takes us on a journey from his childhood as a Jew in Switzerland during the Second World War, to his life in America and his photographic travels through Paris, London and Wales.

This film also explores his relationship with his second wife, the vibrant artist June Leaf, who we see working in both her studios in New York and Mabou, and gives a unique insight into how they live and work together as independent artists.

Rarely seen as Frank limited it to three screenings a year for over a decade, this is a unique opportunity to see the Grierson, Royal Television Society and FIFA award winner, as well as hear from its BAFTA winning director Gerald Fox.

Ticket information coming soon.
