As part of the photojournalism festival in Nigeria, the IfN presents:

“Looking For Gilles Caron” by Mariana Otero (France)
133 min

Gilles Caron was at the height of his career as a brilliant photojournalist when he went missing in Cambodia in 1970. He was just 30 years old. Through his iconic photographs, and the gaps between them, this film, constructed like an investigation, aims to restore the photographer’s presence, recount the story of his gaze, and how he managed to cover every high-profile conflict of his day in such a short period of time.

French with English Subtitles

Dans le cadre du festival de photojournalisme au Nigeria, l'IfN présente :

« Histoire d’un regard » par Mariana Otero (France)

Gilles Caron, alors qu’il est au sommet d’une carrière de photojournaliste fulgurante, disparaît brutalement au Cambodge en 1970. Il a tout juste 30 ans. En l’espace de six ans, il a été l’un des témoins majeurs de son époque. Lorsque la réalisatrice découvre son travail, cela fait écho avec sa propre histoire, la disparition d’un être cher qui ne laisse derrière lui que des images à déchiffrer. Elle se plonge alors dans les 100 000 clichés du photoreporter pour lui redonner une présence et raconter l’histoire de son regard si singulier.
