Otto Grokenberger produced this cult film and his new photobook Stranger In Polaroid (2018) features exclusive, previously unpublished Polaroid images from the film’s set and production. These are the only color photographs that exist of the film set, locations, actors, and costumes. In conversation with curator Felix Hoffmann, Grokenberger will discuss his collaborations with Jarmusch, the film production process, and the unique qualities of Polaroid pictures.
