His name may not be known to many, but photojournalist Henri Dauman’s pictures of 20th century historic events and figures, including Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Elvis Presley, have become iconic. This documentary tells the story of the French Jewish boy who endured several tragedies in his youth to become one of the most prominent chroniclers of American – and indeed, global – history. Speaking about his many losses and triumphs, Dauman proves to be as engaging a communicator in front of the camera as he is behind it.
