Regular price $29.95 $14.99 Sale

From director Michael Almereyda (​​Escapes, Marjorie Prime) comes a direct, subtle portrait of genius​. ​Tracing connections between the groundbreaking images of William Eggleston — widely considered ​the father of ​modern color photography​ — and the artist’s private life, the film opens viewers to intimate glimpses of Eggleston at work, on the road, and on his home turf of Memphis, Tennessee, tracking his interest in music, drawing, and video as well as photography.​ William Eggleston in the Real World is proudly presented in a new edition, restoring Almereyda’s brilliant consideration of a singular mind.​ (Cover photo courtesy Winston Eggleston.)
