The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography

Renowned documentarian Errol Morris (The Thin Blue Line, Fast, Cheap and Out of Control, A Brief History of Time, The Fog of War) takes a close look into photographer Elsa Dorfman's life and career as she neers retirement. Having used the giant 20"x24" Polaroid camera her whole career, Dorfman mastered a unique craft from her Cambridge, MA home. She rose to prominence in the early 1980's, photographing beat poets, rockstars, families, and more.

The B-Side is a departure from Morris' usual styel, leaving his hefty Interrotron camera behind and switching to a more mobile setupe, allowing him to follow the energetic Dorman more freely.
