Zeitgeist Films Picks Up Photog Doc 'Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters'

Zeitgeist Films has acquired Ben Shapiro’s documentary “Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters” and plans to open it at Film Forum October 31 before a nationwide release.

Crewdson is an influential photographer who took inspiration from Diane Arbus, Edward Hopper and films such as “Vertigo,” “The Night of the Hunter” and “Blue Velvet” in creating his elaborately staged photographs of small-town American life. Shapiro’s documentary had its premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March.
