Peter Beard: Scrapbooks fro Africa and Beyond
Easily the most compelling and comprehensive movie ever produced about the life and work of Peter Beard, covering all aspects of his life, professional career, and personal adventures beginning in the 1960s through the 1990s. Iconic photographs of Beard s legendary past are revisited and for the first time we hear the stories about making Beard s first book End of the Game, his appearance in the underground classic Hallelujah the Hills, his fortuitous meeting with British painter Francis Bacon, his friendship with Andy Warhol and his youthful acquaintance with writer Karen Blixen. Beard s epic notebooks, bound with ink, blood, photographs, and the detritus of life on the road are matched here for the first time by his recollections of the remnants of Kenya s colonial past. Narrated by Charlotte Rampling. Additional voice over by Julia Delpy, featuring rare and never-before-seen footage of Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Francis Bacon and Jonas Mekas among numerous others including a collection of Beard s photographs and artwork.
