Directed by Robert Frank

United States 1971 35 mins.

Although this was planned to be a cinematic study of indigenous American music, Frank decided instead to make the film about himself. An actress (Lynn Reyner) plays Frank, examining his life symbolically, questioning the personal toll his work has taken and the value of his contribution as a photographer. His search for freedom is represented by the music.
