The panel discussion was held on 28 November 2012 to mark the opening of a double exhibition with photographic works by the Canadian Jeff Wall and the German Thomas Demand at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. The film is not only interesting in terms of content, with two titans of photography having declared their willingness to engage in conversation and share highly illuminating insights. The documentary is also fascinating in terms of form thanks to the use of three cameras, which – rather unusual for such recordings – makes for an especially elegant presentation of the protagonists.
