Yousuf Karsh Audrey Hepburn

Ernest Hemingway, Martin Luther King, Walt Disney, Einstein, Fidel Castro, JFK, Winston Churchill, Picasso, Glen Gould, Audrey Hepburn: we all know that single, most famous picture of every one of them. Behind the camera was the legendary photographer Yousuf Karsh. This film illuminates the multiple meanings ordinary people as well as critics, curators and philosophers attach to portrait photographs and - through the prism of these meanings - portrays the singular career of Yousuf Karsh, the ultimate mythmaker.
