An intimate portrait of Anton Corbijn as he travels the world as a photographer, filmmaker and video artist. A unique and revelatory look at the drama and conflict inherent in the man himself: the sacrifice of his private life versus his spectacular career, his commercial success versus his desire for artistic recognition, and his audience's admiration versus his personal loneliness. Even if Corbijn during the past 25 years has captured and surrounded himself with the greatest and most talented artists, loneliness has always been his most faithful companion. But just like his iconographic pictures, there is light in the darkness. The love of his work and the love of his immediate family. In this meditative film, we closely follow the shy son of a vicar from The Netherlands, who found salvation in music and photography. Today, he is among other things known as the filmmaker who with 'Control' has embraced the story about Ian Curtis from Joy Division, and who has given Depeche Mode their dark expression and captured artists such as Björk, David Bowie and Nirvana with his analogue lens. Follow the heels of this gentle and reflective man, as he visits the sound check of Arcade Fire, and look over his shoulder when he once again shoots U2 or directs George Clooney in the gangster drama “The American”. Anton Corbijn: Inside Out is both an inspiring film about the enormous scope of creativity and an intimate - at times elegiac - portrait of a pensive.
