Misery Loves Company: The Life & Death of Bruce Gilden

Synopsis: The idea of "street photography," taking one's camera out into the world and shooting whatever catches one's attention, took on a special twist in the work of Bruce Gilden. His photographs are often records of his confrontations with his subjects, and the tension of the moment is as much a part of the final product as the light and shadows. Gideon Gold caught up with the wisecracking Gilden - described as a Damon Runyon of photographers - and provided a platform for Gilden to talk about his life, work, and ideas about photography.
Genre: Documentary
Director(s): Gideon Gold

We should be able to nail

His identity cold.

Jim, assessment?

It is a chance this could be

A genuine defection.

But even if he is genuine,

Starik's more likely dangling

Some bait in front of my nose.

Well, let's take the worst case.

Let's say pinnacle is bait.

He's offering us the mole,

Sasha's identity,

As well as dozens

Of other juicy tidbits.

We should be able to separate

The wheat from the chaff.

Almost impossible to do.

If pinnacle is real,

We'll need to go through

A lengthy process

To establish this fact.

If he is a dispatched agent,

Starik is going through

A great deal of trouble,

And we're going

To need to find out why.

We have two weeks,

According to pinnacle.

That's when Sasha returns.

Debriefing a defector

Is an art unto itself.

It's not simply a matter

Of asking the right questions,

But not asking the right

Questions too quickly--

Very delicate game,

Very delicate.

I'd like to bring

Someone in on this.

Defections take time, Sergei.

How much time?

Five, six weeks.

Sasha is back

In Washington

Before five weeks!

In five weeks,

I am dead man!

Calm down, Sergei.

There is a way out of this.

There is no way

Out of coffin.

What should i do?

Does anyone ever

Call you this late?

Just my mother, it could be her.

Answer it.

But what if it isn't her?

What do i say?

Well, don't say anything.

You're a woman having an affair

With a married man.

You'll naturally

Be evasive, secretive.


can i speak

To Pavel Vitrovski?

No. There's no one here

By that name.

Okay. Thank you.

You--you're welcome.


The S. K. is having

Her phone number.

They are checking on me to see

If there is woman here.

He had an accent.

your people trust you

As much as we do.

thank you,

Mrs. Ept.

You did very well.
