Now considered among the very best of the New York School street photographers, and a leading exponent in the artistic use of color film, Saul Leiter came to this acclaim rather late in life. While much of his most powerful work was made in the 1950s, it wasn’t truly rediscovered until nearly a half-century later. An intimate and personal film, In No Great Hurry follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of clearing an apartment full of memories, becoming world famous in his 80’s and fending off a pesky filmmaker. 2012. UK/USA. 75mins. Colour.
