Fred Stein’s images of 1930s Paris and 1940s New York, as well as his portraits of luminaries such as Albert Einstein and Hannah Arendt, are well-known, but the artist himself was all but forgotten when his son Peter, a cinematographer of note, set about to recapture rightful acclaim for his father. This visually stunning documentary tells the remarkable story of Fred Stein’s life, illuminates his brilliant work, and, most touchingly, traces a son’s heroic efforts to connect with a long-lost parent by honoring his legacy.
