Co-directed by Gereon Wetzel, celebrated in New York for his long-running film El Bulli–Cooking in Progress, this lively and revealing documentary captures the energy and passion of Gerhard Steidl, the German publisher of Günter Grass’s The Tin Drum, Robert Frank’s The Americans, and many excellent artists’ books.
