documentary about Saul Leiter

dear all,
I managed to organize the screening of the documentary movie about Saul Leiter "In No Great Hurry" in Cinemateket as part of the Copenhagen Photography Festival. I'm really excited about it and hope you will make it there as well!

the film is in English.

Tomas Leach, the director, will be there as well for the Questions and Answers session (in English as well).

from the director's statement about the film:

When I was given Early Color, I couldn’t believe that a photographer with such a unique eye had been hidden away so long. Here was a photographer who had a incredible sense of color and framing that felt fresh today, yet he was doing it in the 50s. What had he been doing all these years? Why wasn't he famous? Was there more of this stunning work?
I went to New York to try and speak with Saul and to see if he would consider making a film. He answered the door to me with the words "why do people always want something from me?". With that, he turned and walked back inside leaving me on the doorstop. I followed him in and he started to interview me. His curiosity, humour and perspective on life were so distinctive that I knew I had to get him to agree to the film.
A year and a half later he sort of said yes.
In the past 3 years I’ve been working with Saul on this film, we have become close. Even though he teases me about my dress sense, or my idiotic questions, he is fond of me I think. Our conversations swing between art, love, history, family, coffee, politics, television, religion, money, photography, human decency and New York itself - Saul can talk about anything. He can be grumpy and surly, but is mainly incredibly kind and thoughtful. Every time we speak I come away with my mind overflowing with thoughts and ideas.
I hope that people who see this film enjoy their time with Saul as much as I have.
Tomas Leach, 2012.
