The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography Instrueret af Errol Morris
The concepts of perishability and impermanence are at the core of Morris’s latest work. The documentary serves as a bittersweet contrast between the hope of the inventor Land at the outset that Polaroid will “become part of the human being; an adjunct to your memory,” and the realization of the artist Dorfman at the end of a career: “If you’re a photographer and you’re always nailing down what’s the now, you realize it doesn’t matter … the now is always racing beyond you.”

More than any of Morris’s films, The B-Side is directly about the mystery of capturing a person’s identity on film, whether it’s moving or still. Elsa Dorfman, as a veteran photographer specializing in the mystery of the moment—captured specifically by large-format Polaroid cameras—knows more about this topic than most people, and demystifies it with bracing readiness.

At an incredibly fleet 76 minutes, The B-Side is an unmistakably minor work from a filmmaker who rejiggered the entire nonfictional medium nearly 30 years ago with his true-crime landmark The Thin Blue Line.
