Leica – Soul
The film, shot in black and white and narrated in German, is a homage to the birthplace of Leica and gives a fleeting glimpse of the lives of a war photojournalist and his lover in 1955. Told from the POV of the photographer’s trustworthy Leica III, the story follows him to a conflict where his attraction to photographing the front-line proves fatal. His camera meets a similar end. However 58 years later, it is reincarnated as the Leica M-Monochrom.
