Gianfranco Rosi

Series Site

"The globetrotting documentaries of Gianfranco Rosi are dispatches from the far fringes of society, chronicling everything from life in a California shantytown to death along India’s Ganges River. Despite their disparate geographies, all are rooted in a remarkably strong sense of place, with Rosi often spending years immersed in an environment to establish an intimate rapport with his subjects. To mark the release of his acclaimed, eye-opening new film Fire at Sea, BAMcinématek surveys the career of “a director gradually earning the right to be thought of as one of the greats of our era” (Sight and Sound)."
