How can the endangered city of Venice be preserved? Gianni Berengo Gardin, Italy’s most famous living photographer, addresses this question with his powerful photographs. This movie offers a compelling portrait of the photographer and his work, which celebrates the daily life of Venice and its people over many decades, and recounts the dramatic story of a controversial exhibition that triggered debate, protests, and an international outcry. Berengo Gardin’s early work highlights the “lost” Venice of cafes, canals, and markets that made up a small and vibrant community.
