The film accompanies the photographer Erich Lessing. He is 88 years old, but far from retired. The film shows him in his profession, as a member of the managing board of the photographic cooperative Magnum Photos, at tumultuous family meetings, in his daily routine at his studio with his co-workers.

This film is not currently online :(
