Trailer has now been released for Berlinale World Premiere 1341 FRAMES OF LOVE AND WAR (World Premiere, Berlinale Special Section), a documentary portrait of one of the world’s most important living war photographers, Micha Bar-Am. 

 

Festival Trailer (JUST RELEASED):

 

 

Born in Berlin in 1930, Israeli photojournalist Bar-Am became an internationally recognized photographer in the 1960’s. Today, at the age of 91, he looks at his photographs anew, wondering aloud with emotion and urgency why he photographed, and what his images reflect about humanity and history. FRAMES is an examination of his remembrance as he grapples with the ethics of documenting war imagery and how it has affected him. 

 

Composed entirely of archival images taken by this acclaimed Israeli photo-journalist over fifty years, his illustrious career is recounted as a dual voice-over: that of Micha and his wife Orna, the dedicated archivist who has become her husband’s memory. 

 

FRAMES reveals the enormous psychological price that comes with documenting war and and other human atrocities. 

 

1341 FRAMES OF LOVE AND WAR is written and directed by internationally celebrated Israeli filmmaker Ran Tal (Children of the Sun, The Museum, The Garden of Eden, What If? Ehud Barak on War and Peace). The film is produced by Tal and Sarig Peker, and is supported by yesDOCU.

Born in Berlin in 1930, Bar-Am found his lifelong career as a new immigrant in Israel in the early 1950’s. His photographs depict diverse images of the struggles of a new nation and its ongoing wars and conflicts and much more, including celebrated personal images of his family in the most private moments.

 

The events and wars he doggedly pursued with his Leica camera have become internationally known, iconic images. He became a member of the celebrated Magnum collective, co-founded the International Center of Photography in New York with Cornell Capa, and his photographs have graced countless covers of the world’s major magazines.
