The Man Who Saw Too Much

A 212 Berlin Film

Written and Directed by: Trisha Ziff.


Witkin & Witkin

a photographer and a painter

 

Produced by

Berlin 212 S. de R.L. de C.V.

SYNOPSIS
A film about fragility; a man obsessed with photographing the accident who discovered that the fate of others was his way of connecting to life. What happens when the image of the accident becomes the object of desire? Through the work of Metinides and his contemporaries we discover Mexico City through a narrative of crime scenes and accidents; and confront our own fascination with death, morbidity, rubbernecking though the Metinides Gaze.

SYNOPSIS

Identical twins; Joel-Peter Witkin a photographer and Jerome Witkin a painter; despite both their creative visions and lives steeped in making art, share little in common and share less than one would imagine. A film about individual perception; creativity and the pursuit of art. At the same time, a film about life, love, loss and distance. Identical twins devoted to their individual process of making art and not to each other.
