In No Great Hurry

"I believe there is such a thing as the search for beauty." —Saul Leiter

Saul Leiter (1923-2013) could have been lauded as the great pioneer of color photography, but was never driven by the lure of conventional success. Instead he preferred to drink coffee and photograph his own way, amassing an archive of gorgeous work that is now piled high in his New York City apartment.

A funny, intimate, and moving film, In No Great Hurry, follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of clearing an apartment full of memories, becoming world-famous in his 80's, and fending off a pesky filmmaker. 

"…but disorder, there's a certain kind of charm and comfort in disorder that not everyone appreciates. To know everything, is not good. To be in a state of pleasant confusion sometimes can be very satisfying, especially if you're slightly crazy, but I must not let on that I know this."

—Saul Leiter
