Vladimir Kabelik's film Beautifully Broken
Beautifully Broken a film directed by MRFA artist Vladimir Kabelik, is about the life and work of Rafael Goldchain-- a renowned Canadian contemporary photographer whose work has been exhibited in New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Canadian Museum for Contemporary Photography, and around the world. The documentary explores how photography is only one layer that exposes his creative life. Goldchain's fascination with identity and mortality stems from his Jewish heritage and ancestors who died in the Holocaust. Understanding the complexity of Jewish identity is something Goldchain hopes to pass on to his son. As the photographer explains: "If I had an easy life, there would be no pictures."
"I knew right from the beginning that my approach would be different because I very much disliked the thought of just 'filming a guy who takes pictures.'"
- Vladimir Kabelik, Director
Ki: Michael Levin
Click on the image to watch a stunning video piece by Brad Kremer featuring Michael Levin at work creating his photographs in Japan. Brad Kremer is based in Savannah, Georgia and regularly shoots for Nike and Burton Snowboards, often using very creative time-lapse photography to give his work a kinetic pacing. Brilliant. The feature video Kremer and Levin shot together is a stylized view of how Levin makes his way through Japan. Enjoyed best at full screen.
