The Washington Jewish Film Festival is hosting a screening of Errol Morris’s The B-Side on June 27:
The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography
Tuesday, June 27, 7:30 pm | Edlavitch DCJCC
Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid Land 20×24 camera. For the next thirty-five years she captured the “surfaces” of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts studio: families, Beat poets, rock stars, and Harvard notables. As pictures begin to fade and her retirement looms, Dorfman gives Errol Morris an inside tour of her backyard archive.
Looks like a fascinating film for anyone interested in photography, film, or portraiture! Tickets and all the details are on WJFF’s website.
