The Man I Left Behind

1h 23m Hubert Hayaud Matthieu Rytz Larry Towell Canada 2024

Larry Towell’s business card reads: ‘Human Being’. For the past 40 years, the celebrated Magnum photographer has chronicled humankind’s deepest struggles. The Canadian artist and folk musician reflects on his relentless pursuit of stories shaped by conflict and displacement. He pulls from a vast archive of photos, videos, songs, and poetry to contrast the turmoil of conflicts over territory with the serenity of his own family farm. The film poignantly explores how losing land can mean losing self and is a testament to the power of bearing witness. Ultimately, it portrays the profound absurdity of war.
