Get The Picture – John G Morris Documentary Needs Finishing

The producer of a film about legendary picture editor John G Morris, 95, is looking for help getting the film funded and finished.
My name is Cathy Pearson and I have been making this film since Oct 2009 in the role of producer/director. I first met John G Morris in Paris in a serendipitous meeting in the lovely Chez Janou Restaurant in Le Marais district in Paris, John’s local neighborhood. He was 92 years old at the time. He told me stories about his times with Alfred Hitchcock, Marlene Dietrich, Robert Capa, Earnest Hemingway and Henri Cartier Bresson to name but a few of his peers. But what really stuck me about John was how informed he was about the world today and how interested he is so many current affairs, I am sure this is what keeps him so youthful and energetic. I read his professional memoir “Get the Picture” and then asked his permission to make a film about his life. He agreed and this is what is now unfolding. The film includes contributions form some of the worlds most renowned names in photography and journalism including Marc Riboud, Martine Franck, Paulo Pellegrin, Stanley Greene, Don McCullin, Christiane Amanpour, Yann Arthus Bertrand, Peter Turnley and New York Times staff photographers Chester Higgins Jr and Librado Romero and many at the Magnum Photo Agency.
Please join me on this incredible creative journey, through the world of photojournalism, history, humanity and time and become a part of the community involved in getting this film made and documenting an important part of our world history.
