LOOKING FOR GILLES CARON

A film by Mariana Otero

documentary / France / Color / status : in post-production / French / long feature-film

Gilles Caron was at the height of his career as a brilliant photojournalist when he went missing in Cambodia in 1970. He was just 30 years old. Through his iconic photographs, and the gaps between them, this film, constructed like an investigation, aims to restore the photographer’s presence, recount the story of his gaze, and how he managed to cover every high profile conflict of his day in such a short period of time.

By award winning director Mariana Otero.
By Archipel 33, producer of the Dardenne Brothers’ films.
