ROBERT CAPA: IN LOVE AND WAR

UK, 2002 (MIFF 2007, Magnum In Motion)

Director: Anne Makepeace

The charismatic Hungarian Robert Capa - war photographer, bon viveur, gambler and legendary lover as well as co-founder of Magnum - is still remembered with great affection at the agency and could be said to be Magnum's talisman. In this fascinating portrait, Anne Makepeace shows why Capa was such a driving force behind Magnum. She takes care to explore both the charm of the man and the significance of his work, and the ideals which continue to inspire the co-operative to this day.
