Isi 46

Sometimes you search for a story. Other times a story seems to find you. My story with Isi is a little of both - serendipity and destiny.”
— James Forni, Director 

Isi X was one of the most high-profile and in-demand photographers of Warhol-era New York. But behind the lens there was a dark secret. A past filled with unimaginable evil. Orphaned by the Holocaust, this film traces the story of a man whose very existence proves that there is nothing in this world more indomitable than the human spirit. Filmed in 30 locations in Europe, Isi’s story spans the globe and touches such fashion and music luminaries as Jimi Hendrix, Robert Altman, and the Velvet Underground.
