From Academy Award winning filmmaker Errol Morris comes THE B-SIDE. Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger­-than­-life Polaroid 20×24 camera. For the next 35 years she captured the “surfaces” of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts studio: families, Beat poets, rock stars, and Harvard notables. As photographs begin to fade and Dorfman’s retirement looms, Morris’s film reminds us of a bygone era of analog photography and the extraordinary life of one of its champions. Opens in theaters June 30th.
