Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Legendary Canadian filmmaker Frank Cole entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the first man to cross the Sahara on foot. Meticulous, fearless, obsessive, and the maker of at least two bonafide masterpieces, there has never been anything in the cinema like Frank Cole. His murder in Mali left us with a legacy of two features, a pair of award-winning short films and a mystery that may never be solved.

This book is a ravishing odyssey of inner and outer visions, a heaven-sent trove of first-person experiences and critical vantages. It features never-before-seen material from the filmmaker himself, including colour postcards, photographs and excerpts from a journal made during his Sahara crossings. Here, more than a dozen international luminaries weigh in on the Canadian legend, alongside Korbett Matthews' award-winning documentary The Man Who Crossed the Sahara.

Synopsis:

Film Studies. Multimedia. Filmmaker Frank Cole's picture can be found in the Guinness Book of World Records, an honour he was granted after crossing the Sahara desert on a camel. This volume collects voices near and far offering multiple vantages to the rigorous enigma this filmmaker. Each of Cole's movies is lavishly documented within, and the book reproduces stunning desert vistas and personal encounters in both color and black and white. The book also contains Korbett Mathews' award-winning documentary The Man Who Crossed the Sahara, an hour-long dvd featuring clips and interviews with those who knew him best.
