Still image from the film Harry Benson: Shoot First
Harry Benson: Shoot First charts the illustrious career of the renowned photographer who initially rose to fame alongside The Beatles, having been assigned to cover their inaugural trip to the U.S. in 1964. With unprecedented behind-the-scenes access, Benson captured some of the most vibrant and intimate portraits ever taken of the most popular band in history. His extensive portfolio includes iconic images of Winston Churchill, Bobby Fischer, Muhammed Ali, Greta Garbo, Michael Jackson, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the Robert F. Kennedy assassination. His work has appeared in countless publications, including Life, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. Now 86, workaholic Benson has no intention of stopping. (2K DCP Presentation)
