NEW YORK, NY.- Film Forum will present the US theatrical premiere of Gerald Fox’s Leaving Home, Coming Home: A Portrait of Robert Frank, beginning Wednesday, May 29. The movie was shot in 2004, but only now is being released in the US. Gareth Evans, writing in Time Out (London) calls the film a “superb document. The fact that this feature portrait of perhaps the world’s greatest (but previously unforthcoming) photographer exists at all is reason enough for celebration. That it’s also an authoritative, remarkably candid and often moving study is manna indeed… It follows the Swiss-born, Stateside artist, who changed the very nature of visual practice with his definitive ’50s publication The Americans, as he looks back on his life from the perspectives of New York and coastal Nova Scotia. Frank is entirely open and demythologizing about his images and films, marriage and family, as well as the profound wellsprings of loneliness and loss, public and private, that have underpinned his work.”

Leaving Home, Coming Home: A Portrait of Robert Frank will have a two-week engagement, Wednesday, May 29 – Tuesday, June 11, at Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street (West of 6th Avenue), with screenings daily at 12:30, 2:20, 4:10, 6:00, 7:50, & 9:40.

Presented with support from the Helen Frankenthaler Endowed Fund for Films on Art and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation Fund.

“Fascinating. Intimate. Takes the viewer deep inside the subject’s personal and creative life. Communicate[s] something important about the real man behind the artist.” – Deborah Young, Variety

“The most enjoyable parts of this moving documentary show Frank with his second wife, the sculptor June Leaf - a wonderfully feisty woman who has sustained him throughout... Mutual love and respect shines through.” – Sarah Kent, The Arts Desk
