Larry Towell is the only Canadian member of the legendary Magnum Photos agency, known for its humanist and universal approach. Towell belongs to this tradition. His curiosity may guide him sometimes to the heart of conflicts, but his works express a particular sense of intimacy. This documentary reveals the artist and the man through his photographic work and his open meditations on life and the creative process. The film was shot in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (West Bank and East Jerusalem), at the border between Mexico and the United States (States of California and Baja California), in New York, and in Southern Ontario, Canada. Towell�s breathtaking images are bound together in this work by multiple notions of territory � forbidden territories, occupied territories, creative territories, and territories of refuge.
