In the small mountain town of Heber Springs, the eccentric Arkansas portrait photographer known as Mike Disfarmer captured the lives and emotions of the people of rural America during the two World Wars and the Great Depression. Critics have hailed Disfarmer's remarkable portraits, which were discovered in 1976, as 'a work of artistic genius'. This documentary explores the misanthropic photographer's influence on the modern Manhattan art world, and the legacy he left behind in his hometown.
