HENRI DAUMAN: LOOKING UP

COMING IN MARCH 2020

Peter Kenneth Jones' film about the life and career of a photographer who captured the 20th century's most iconic images is set for a 2020 North American release.

Samuel Goldwyn Films has picked up North American rights to Peter Kenneth Jones’ documentary Henri Dauman: Looking Up, which is set for a 2020 theatrical release.

 

The film had its world premiere at the 2018 Hamptons International Film Festival and captures the life and career of Holocaust survivor and New York City resident Henri Dauman, a legend among 20th century American photojournalists for his iconic images.

 

Dauman is not widely known in popular culture, but his images of Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Miles Davis, Yves Saint Laurent, Andy Warhol, Elvis Presley and John F. Kennedy are and fill an archive of over 1 million photo negatives.

The photographer was revealed to the public in November 2014, in Paris, during the retrospective "The Manhattan Darkroom" under the initiative of Vincent Montana.

It is from this exhibition that Peter Kenneth Jones decided to make a documentary film.

Jones' film recounts Dauman's life story behind the camera, including being orphaned at 13 and raising his own family, which included his son, former Viacom chief Philippe Dauman.

Henri Dauman: Looking Up was produced by Glen Zipper, Kerri Borusk, Nicole Suerez (Dauman's granddaughter), Roland Smith, Kenneth Jones and Will Keesee, with Bobby Campbell executive producing.

 

The film will be distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Miles Davis, Yves Saint Laurent, Andy Warhol, Elvis Presley, JFK & Jean-Luc Godard have all found a home inside his archive of one million negatives.
