Event Details

Join us as we watch and discuss some of the best in non-fiction cinema. These films have not been shown to the Phoenix filmgoing audience before. If you are a doc lover (like we are), this spotlight series is not to be missed!

On October 13, join the Phoenix Film Festival as we bring to Phoenix Harry Benson: Shoot First.

HARRY BENSON: SHOOT FIRST charts the illustrious career of the renowned photographer who initially rose to fame alongside The Beatles, having been assigned to cover their inaugural trip to the United States in 1964. With unprecedented “behind the scenes” access, Benson captured some of the most vibrant and intimate portraits ever taken of the most popular band in history. His extensive portfolio includes iconic images of Winston Churchill, Bobby Fischer, Muhammad Ali, Greta Garbo, Michael Jackson, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Robert F. Kennedy assassination, and his work has appeared in publications including Life, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. Now 86, workaholic Benson has no intention of stopping.

A hosted discussion will take place after the film.
