Gilles Caron: Histoire d’un regard

93 mins

FRA | dir. Mariana Otero | 2020 | doc | cert. TBC | UK Premiere

Gilles Caron, at the peak of his career as a photojournalist, suddenly disappeared in Cambodia in 1970. He was barely 30 years old. In the space of 6 years, he had become one of the major witnesses of his time, covering the Six-Day War, May 68, the Northern Irish troubles and the Vietnam War. When Mariana Otero discovered Gilles Caron’s work, a photograph caught her attention, echoing his own story, the disappearance of a loved one who left behind only images to be deciphered. She takes us on a fascinating journey through over 100,000 shots to recount and reimagine the story of his singular gaze. Looking for Gilles Caron was nominated to the Cesar for Best Documentary.
