Brief Encounters

A new feature-length documentary about American photographer Gregory Crewdson is set to launch at South by Southwest next month.  Filmed over a 10-year period by Director Ben Shapiro, ‘Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters’ follows the artist on his epic movie-style photo-shoots, often involving crews of up to 60 people.  Crewdson specializes in large-format, cinematic psychodramas, and the film focuses on the development of his key series, ‘Beneath the Roses’; a body of work that conveys American life gone dramatically, inexplicably, wrong.
