ELLIOTT ERWITT, SILENCE SOUNDS GOOD. Trailer. 2019. 62′ from Cargo Film & Releasing on Vimeo.

Elliott Erwitt: Silence Sounds Good (62 mins) follows legendary Magnum photographer (Recent Developments; Dogs Dogs; Personal Best) as he travels back to Cuba for the first time since his iconic Newsweek photos of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara for a new book and exhibition. Narrated by his photo assistant, the film dives into Erwitt’s extensive photo archives of presidents, popes and everyday people while showcasing Erwitt’s signature wry observations, often likened to “Chaplin movies.” As Elliott enters his ninth decade, his deadpan sense of humor and irrepressible spirit are still sharply in focus. Directed by Adriana Lopez Sanfeliu. Written by Mark Monroe (The Cove; Icarus)
