Seeing is Believing: The Non-Fictions of Errol Morris

Sunday, November 27–Thursday, December 1, 2011

One of the United States’ most notable documentarians, Errol Morris has been paving a distinct trail for himself since he emerged as a filmmaker in the early 1980s. In recent years, he has become synonymous with probing, in-depth character studies of the sometimes important, sometimes infamous, and always fascinating people beneath the headlines. From his early investigative work like THE THIN BLUE LINE, to his break-out film FAST, CHEAP, AND OUT OF CONTROL, to his amazingly revealing studies of war and death, to his latest film TABLOID, this series offers a near complete survey of his theatrical documentaries – and yet it only scratches the surface of a career that has included vast amounts of work. Mr. Morris will appear at the Brattle on Wednesday, November 30 for a discussion sponsored by Harvard Book Store about his latest book, Believing Is Seeing: Observations on the Mysteries of Photography.
