STEIDL/THE ROBERT FRANK PROJECT

Frank Films

The Film and Video Work of Robert Frank

Edited by Brigitta Burger-Utzer, Stefan Grisseman.

On the heels of Steidl's DVD releases of Robert Frank's films, and as a part of their impressive ongoing project to make all of Frank's output available, Frank Films redresses the imbalance of critical attention paid to his work in cinema--an oeuvre as esteemed among cinephiles as his photography is elsewhere. Frank turned to filmmaking towards the end of the 1950s, interrupting his swift rise to fame after The Americans. Frank describes "a decision: I put my Leica in a cupboard. Enough of lying in wait, pursuing, sometimes catching the essence of the black and the white, the knowledge where God is. I make films. Now I speak to the people in my viewfinder." Never content to walk the same path twice, he has approached each of his 27 films as a new experience, so that his films have proved difficult to categorize, especially in their amalgamation of documentary, fiction and autobiography. Frank Films presents essays by Amy Taubin, Philip Brookman, Stefan Grisseman, Thomas Miessgang, Kent Jones, Michael Barchet, Pia Neuman and Bert Rebhandl, an interview with Allen Ginsberg and essays by various authors examining each film and video in detail. Visually, Frank Films provides a unique approach to the work, since--at his request--only new stills made from videotapes have been used for reproduction.
Robert Frank was born in Zurich in 1924 to parents of Jewish descent. He immigrated to the United States two years after World War II ended, and since then he has produced work that changed the history of art and photography. Groundbreaking projects include The Americans, Lines of My Hand, Black White and Things, Pull My Daisy and Cocksucker Blues. Frank was the subject of a major retrospective organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in 1994. He was the recipient of the Hasselblad Award in 1996. A major exhibition organized by The National Gallery of Art, Looking In: Robert Frank's "The Americans," is touring nationally in 2009, with stops in Washington, San Francisco and New York.
