Item description for Robert Frank: Me and My Brother by Robert Frank...
Me and My Brother, Robert Frank's first feature-length film, premiered at the 1968 Venice Film Festival. Everything that had defined Frank's art up to that point is packed into this film--the view of America as if from the outside, the placement of the marginal in a central role, the poetic libertinage of the Beats. The story, which takes place during the showing of another film in a rundown movie theater, weaves together opposites, playing the counterfeit against the authentic, pornography against poetry, acting against being, Beat cynicism against hippie romanticism, monochrome against color. Me and My Brother celebrates the poetic essay, affirms the underground and the assemblage form, and packs in some bizarre twists and turns. This book and DVD set includes stills, dialogue and the re-edited 85-minute film.
