From Standing Room Only, 12:35 pm on 7 June 2020

Photographs of Marilyn Monroe lying in bed draped in white sheets, and of the tear-stained face of Judy Garland towards the end of her life, are among the best known images taken by Douglas Kirkland over his long career. Known as the Photographer to the Stars, he also worked as a photojournalist capturing images of everyday people. Six decades of Douglas' images are explored in a new documentary, That Click, coming to the DocEdge international film festival this month.  It's director is Luca Severi.
