Upon his death in 2004 at the age of 96, peripatetic photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson was mourned as "the father of photojournalism." Though the camera-shy shutterbug was reluctant to offer himself up as a subject, this documentary from director Heinz Bütler offers a rare moment alone with the photographer as he explores his portfolio and offers detailed insight into the remarkable images that moved millions. Focusing in particular on Cartier-Bresson's widely acclaimed work from the period ranging from the '40s through the '60s, director Bütler explores the stories behind the photographer's stunning images of such historical events as the death of Gandhi and the liberation of Paris.
