55 years ago, Pete Seeger didn’t name names at the McCarthy hearings and was sentenced to ten years in prison. Out on appeal, blacklisted, watched by the FBI, he buys an old camera. With his wife Toshi, they start filming their musician friends. After several years of making small films, they decide to take the family around- the-world to film musicians in the most remote corners

Multiple Visions (The Crazy Machine) documents the work of one of the keenest eyes in film history, Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa, who’s responsible for many of the lasting images from Mexico’s golden age of cinema. From 1932 through 1983, Figueroa worked for such greats as John Ford, Howard Hawks and Luis Buñuel. While many cinematographers of today appear to praise the master, Multiple Visions works best when it lets Figueroa’s films play for long stretches uninterrupted, allowing the work to speak for itself.
