Documentary - Abbas by Abbas

Cultural, Movie screening, Cinema in Montauban

  • Abbas was a great reporter. He went to the scene of the great events that changed the world from the 1970s to today.

  • He worked for the biggest news agencies. In other words, it is at the heart of the history of contemporary photography. But not only. Beyond having been a witness of his time, we can say that he will have been its confidant. This is reflected in his way of getting involved in a conflict, of traveling a country, without a priori, to meet men caught up in the upheavals of history, but also by his curiosity for the way people live different religions.

Beyond having been a witness of his time, we can say that he will have been its confidant. This is reflected in his way of getting involved in a conflict, of traveling a country, without a priori, to meet men caught up in the upheavals of history, but also by his curiosity for the way people live different religions.
    What does photography tell about men? What do men tell about themselves through their multiple practices? Here is the portrait of an observer of the world, the last words of a great photographer of our time, a few days before he passed away.
