Synopsis

A dialogue between director Joannie Lafrenière and Hungarian-born photographer Gabor Szilasi, this film paints a tender and colorful portrait of this humanist artist who has spent the last 60 years documenting the eloquence of daily life in his host country, the Quebec. Through various confidences, encounters and stagings tinged with humor and complicity, Gabor shows a unique look at photography as much as at life and old age, which he approaches with curiosity, resilience and optimism.
