Walking for Godot [Samuel Beckett in Paris]
...both travelogue & biography, shot through with fragments of drama as we follow Irish photographer John Minihan from West Cork, Ireland to Paris, revisiting the life of his most famous subject, Samuel Beckett.
John Minihan, Ireland’s greatest living photographer has captured many great literary and cultural figures; John Banville, Seamus Heaney, Edna O’Brien, Francis Bacon, Van Morrsion, The Who and Samuel Beckett to name just a few. His entire catalogue has recently been acquired by UCC as a permanent collection. This documentary follows on from The Man Who Shot Beckett, a critically acclaimed programme profiling the early life of Minihan leading up to his portraits of Beckett.
