Sam Szafran / Outlaw Painter

Sam Szafran / Outlaw painter

  • Bastien Rokk


Himself. Alone. A filmmaker undertakes a movie about Sam Szafran. About this painter born in Paris in 1934, who defines himself as a complete exile in the art world. This painter who rarely leaves his studio anymore. A small disused factory in the Paris suburbs; and steadfastly continues to paint there, until forced out by old age. Based on the artist's personal universe which serves as its material, the film - a portrait of the artist's relationship with his medium, studio and memory - shows its entanglement in the world that it shoots, edits and projects.
