“The Man who saw too much’, is a documentary feature which looks at the career of Mexican photographer Enrique Metinides. When the image of the accident becomes an object of desire; the work of Metinides. This film explores the journey of his work, from his first photographs as accidents made as a young child, which appeared throughout his career on the front cover sof the tabloid newspaper sold at traffic lights throughout Mexico City, to the plan chests in collections of major museums in the world, owned by collectors and enjoyed by a cult following. The film traces this journey, and explores our own relationship to the accident, that ambivalence to look or not, the fragility when life can simply change in a moment. The work of Metinides intrigues and repels, but always reminds us of our own mortality and our inability to guarantee anything.
