“The Collector is an ongoing portrait of Christian, a lifetime collector who has “worked” the streets of his local town in Provence for the last 30 years. Every night, from midnight till dawn he makes a careful circuit of the town’s dustbins and picks up things he considers useful. These are added to his ever-burgeoning collection which now fills the three plots of land he inherited from his grandparents. The second part of the film revisits Christian after 3 years to find him adapting to new restrictions imposed by his nemesis, the town’s mayor. The film was made with the photographer Leonie Purchas.”

Wonderful short doc. from Martin Hampton. A perfect example of how documentary making is an art form…giving us an opportunity to view a subject from a perspective that we might not have achieved on our own. Comments?
