An intimate view of his life and work at the time, Fire in the East: A Portrait of Robert Frank was the first documentary depiction of Robert Frank and includes many friends and colleagues such as Allen Ginsberg, Jonas Mekas, Rudy Wurlitzer, and others. (Philip Brookman and Amy Brookman, 1986, 28 minutes)

A cinema verité sketch moving between New York and Nova Scotia, Leaving Home, Coming Home captures Robert Frank (who died in 2019) reflecting on a life of image-making as he revisits places where he lived and worked. Though completed fifteen years ago, this first feature-length film about the Swiss-American photographer was only recently released in the United States.
