Robert Vano: The Story Of A Man

MA15+ Documentary

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Robert Vano: The Story Of A Man at Dendy Newtown

Synopsis

Photographer Robert Vano: “I never wanted a Porsche or a cottage in the country. I wanted to take pictures.”

Robert Vano worked with the most famous men and the most beautiful women in the world. He met the biggest icons of show business yet he isn’t world famous. He made thousands of dollars a day and never got rich. The little he did plan never worked out and yet he has never given much thought to all he had accomplished.

He wanted recognition, but in America he got only ‘success’. He went further afield in search of it to Italy, Spain, Germany and France but none gave it to him. And when he didn’t care for it anymore, he found recognition, success and the media attention to go with it on his return to his former homeland.

Zika’s film deviates from the format of biographical documentaries on important personalities because Vano’s attitude to life has never been driven by the dogged determination we tend to see in important people. As a result, we can relate to Robert Vano and his life story far more than we might have otherwise expected.

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place?
