KOUDELKA: SHOOTING HOLY LAND | Official Trailer from Nowhere Films on Vimeo.

“Koudelka—Shooting Holy Land,” a documentary film by Gilad Baram that follows legendary Czech photographer Josef Koudelka as he photographs in Israel and the West Bank, will have its New York debut on June 26 at Anthology Film Archives. Koudelka and Baram will be in attendance for a Q&A about the film.

Baram made the 72-minute documentary while assisting Koudelka as he created “WALL,” a project about the barrier wall separating Israel from the West Bank. From this intimate perspective of photographer’s assistant, the film gives viewers an understanding of Koudelka’s process for making photographs, and reveals some of his personality and philosophy (for more about the film, read our review, here).

The International Center of Photography is presenting the screening to coincide with the exhibition Magnum Manifesto at the ICP Museum, which celebrates the 70-year anniversary of the famous photography cooperative. Koudleka joined Magnum in 1970.
