Errol Morris Retrospective

Called “one of America’s strangest and most brilliant documentary filmmakers,” by Roger Ebert, the great Errol Morris has a special curiosity for what makes people tick. It’s what led to his off-kilter portraits like Gates of Heaven and Vernon, Florida and eventually down a more political road with incisive masterworks like The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War.

Perhaps the most skilled interviewer working in documentary, Morris has a knack for getting people to reveal themselves on camera—and even when they do their best to present a persona, his camera tells a deeper truth. Occasioned by his latest film, The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography, we’re proud to present a retrospective of his major work.
