The story of a renowned female photographer, “The Incomparable Rose Hartman”, is coming to town and will be screening at the Bangkok Screening Room from June 30 to July 23.

Directed by Otis Mass, the documentary follows the career of Hartman, who has taken some of the most iconic images of famous people like Jerry Hall, Mick and Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol and other fashion icons during the Studio 54 era. She later pioneered the backstage workings of 7th Ave., making quick fans of Donna Karan and Carolina Herrera. But does Hartman simply work a room, or is she working to belong? 

Hartman is now 80 years old. She’s been called a lot of names but irascible best defines the woman whose sharp eye and sharper elbows have defined the New York City social scene for decades.

The film premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, and has shown at other events including DOC NYC, HotDOCS, Grand River Film Festival, San Diego Film Festival, Portland Film Festival, and the Cape Cod International Film Festival.

The film is in English with Thai subtitles 

Other films in the programme from June 30 to July 23 include the documentary “Homme Less”, about homeless model-turned-photographer Mark Reay, a coming of age story from the UK “Handsome Devil” and the classic “Sunset Boulevard”.

The venue is also hosting special photography exhibition curated by renowned fashion stylist and academic Art Araya, during the film season.

The BKKSR is on Soi Saladaeng 1 and easily accessible by both MRT and BTS systems.
