Harold Feinstein started taking pictures in his teens, exhibited at MoMA before he turned 20 and was an integral part of the mid-century New York School of Photography alongside Diane Arbus and Garry Winogrand. But his decision to isolate himself later in life meant his work was gradually forgotten. It was only earlier this decade that the then relatively unknown artist, who died in 2015, was rediscovered. This British-produced documentary delves into the depths of Feinstein’s body of work, which is strongly characterised by his love of people, and life.

“Dunn’s film is fully attuned to the vibrancy and tenderness and sense of possibility in Feinstein’s photos, to the life in them.” The Hollywood Reporter
