The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography 
(And The Umbrella Man)

“[An] enjoyable but also profound movie.” Glenn Kenny, New York Times.

The latest from famed documentarian Errol Morris features portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman, who found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid Land 20 x 24” camera. For the next thirty-five years she captured the "surfaces" of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio: families, Beat poets, rock stars, and Harvard notables.
