Synopsis

Documentary biography about photographer Peter Beard, narrated by Charlotte Rampling with additional voiceovers by Julie Delpy. From the making of his first book, 'End of the Game', to his appearance in the 1963 underground film 'Hallelujah the Hills', his fortuitous meeting with British painter Francis Bacon, his friendship with Andy Warhol and his youthful acquaintance with writer Karen Blixen, the film uses rare film footage alongside Beard's own photographs and artwork to tell the story of a life crammed with beautiful people and wild adventures.
