This documentary is about a man obsessed with photographing the accident, who discovered that the fate of others was his own way of connecting to life.
A film about a compelling face with Hitchcockian overtones: a face that is confronted time and time again by the camera in utter darkness; as if his look through the lens will reveal some psychological inkling to what makes a person devote himself to documenting death.
The more we try to understand him and acknowledge our own compelling fascination with accidents, the more we realize that we too are being lured into the Metinides Gaze.
