For those like me going through Olympics withdrawal symptoms... this Sundance channel documentary on Peter Beard is like a dose of Methadone. It is mesmerizing.

PETER BEARD: SCRAPBOOKS FROM AFRICA & BEYOND

Renowned for his magnificent images of Africa's landscape and wildlife, his collage diaries and his commercial fashion shoots, photographer Peter Beard comes into focus in this documentary profile by Guillaume Bonn and Jean-Claude Luyat. Beard's life and half-century career has been divided between remote African locales and fashionable cosmopolitan circles, where he has counted among his friends Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Francis Bacon and Mick Jagger. A rare and engrossing portrait of one of the world's last artist-adventurers.
