Movie Night at DCP: A Single Frame Nov. 3

a-single-frame-01-0720pm

While on a trip to Dubrovnik in 2007, Jeff Bowden encounters a photograph of a refugee boy taken during the war in Kosovo. Driven by this haunting image, Bowden sets out to find the child. His journey takes him from Texas to Paris, and ultimately to the post-war culture of the Balkans, where he combines forces with an experienced war-time fixer.

Weaving together the stories of the war, the now-deceased photojournalist, Alexandra Boulat, and the search for the boy, A Single Frame is a testament to the power of photography and to the belief that every life matters.

Jeff Bowden will be at the screening and we will have a Q&A session afterwards.

In 2007, Bowden walked in to an upstairs alcove at War Photo Limited gallery in Dubrovnik, Croatia and gasped. War Photo was featuring the work of female photographers. Included among a collection of cover page cataclysms – cars blow to smithereens and buildings on fire was a portrait of an Albanian boy. “I coverd my mouth,” Bowden remembers. “I was afraid I might cry out.” A veteran war photographer described the boy’s expression as that of a middle aged man. Bowden’s daughter, Gracie, witnessed Bowden’s reaction. Three years later, she gave Bowden the photograph as a surprise gift. He framed it and hung it in his office. Three more years passed. “I never forgot about that boy,” Bowden said, “Eventually I decided I had to know what happened to him.” Ultimately, Bowden made six trips to Kosovo.

At the time of the search, Bowden managed a family real estate partnership. Prior to that he was a senior editor and columnist at D Magazine, the city magazine of Dallas. In 2005, Bowden produced and directed the feature documentary, Get Back to Dirt, which was broadcasted by Fox/Speed Channel. Bowden is currently at work on a documentary about his connection to a small town in Sicily, which was destroyed in an earthquake in 1938. He is married and has three grown children. He and his wife, Jennifer, live in Austin. Bowden is executive producer of A Single Frame.

This movie is proudly being sponsored by the Texas Photographic Society.
