Looking for Gilles Caron 一個目擊者的故事
Histoire d’un regard

Gilles Caron was at the height of his career as a brilliant photojournalist when he went missing in Cambodia in 1970. He was just 30 years old. Through his iconic photographs, and the gaps between them, this film, constructed like an investigation, aims to restore the photographer’s presence, recount the story of his gaze, and how he managed to cover every high profile conflict of his day in such a short period of time.

Nomination - Best Documentary, Cesar Awards, French Film Industry Awards, 2021 

1970 年,攝影記者吉勒.卡宏在柬浦寨失縱時正處於事業的巔峰。那一年他剛滿30 歲。本片的情節如進行調查一樣,旨在透過他所拍攝的一些具標致性的照片以及照片與照片之間的時間差距來重塑這位紀實攝影記者的身影,重新講述他曾目擊過的故事,以及在他生前,他是如何在如此短的時間內報導這麼多重大的衝突事件。
