Dinner and a Doc, November 13, 2010

We will be screening Hector Cruz Sandoval’s Kordavision for this month’s Dinner and a Doc on November 13th.  We will be meeting at First Baptist Church, Guelph, which is located at 255 Woolwich Street, eating at 5:30 and beginning the film at about 6:00. Please post a comment or send me an email to let me know if you will be coming and if you would like to bring something to contribute to the meal.

Kordavision tells the story of photographer Alberto Diaz Korda, who is most famous for having shot the iconic image of Che Guevara, but who produced a whole wealth of other powerful photography as well.   Besides his work during the Cuban Revolution, he produced everything from fashion photography to underwater photography and is known especially for his ability with black and white photography and his eye for framing.  The film follows Korda as he returns to the sites where some of his most famous photographs were taken, telling the story of one of the world’s most remarkable photographers.

      I have not yet decided. I have been spending too much time fighting with my computer to give much thought to anything else.
