MR G.

Tout peut arriver (original title)


A film by Ralf Kämpfe

Gilbert Garcin, now in his eighties, is an internationally recognized photographer.

Born in Marseille, he led a quiet life as a shopkeeper for 40 years, making and selling lights when in 1993, at an age where most people think about retirement, he found his vocation.

At 65, he reveals his true nature and discovers himself.

He then becomes an ageless man through his double “Mister G”, a truly unclassifiable personality telling stories and illustrating his dreams.

The film follows this “young” artist for 5 years and for the first time, the photographer reveals his methods and talks about his atypical journey.
