"I believe there is such a thing as a search for beauty"
Saul Leiter could have been lauded as the great pioneer of colour photography, but was never driven by the lure of success. Instead he preferred to drink coffee and photograph in his own way, amassing an archive of beautiful work that is now piled high in his New York apartment.
In a funny, intimate and moving film, In No Great Hurry follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of cleaning an apartment full of memories, becoming world famous in his 80's and fending off a pesky film maker.
Released theatrically in the US, UK, Japan, South Africa and Germany. A best seller on iTunes and nominated for prizes at several festivals.
