Gianni Berengo Gardin’s Tale of Two Cities

Gianni Berengo Gardin’s Tale of Two Cities

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.
