Short Film: Flo, Riley Hooper’s Doc on Blind Street Photographer Flo Fox
New York-based filmmaker Riley Hooper has just posted online his short doc, Flo, about blind New York street photographer Flo Fox. The film has played numerous festivals, including Rooftop Films, Hot Docs and the Hamptons, and it won a Grand Jury Prize at DOC NYC. In the words of the filmmaker:
This 10-minute documentary explores the life and work of photographer Flo Fox, who, despite blindness, multiple sclerosis, and lung cancer, continues to shoot the streets of New York City. No longer able to hold a camera, she instructs her aides to take photos for her. She’s an incredible woman with a feisty spirit, sharp wit, and dirty sense of humor.
