Laura Goldstein of Mashumashu writes "Don’t let his grandfatherly demeanor under a lustrous thick head of white hair fool you. At age 86 and one of the last bastions of North American street photographers known as “humanists”, George S. Zimbel is one tough cookie. A champion of the Everyman (and woman,) his lens has captured burlesque queens, truckers and presidents, movie stars and kids just playing in the street, with the same unpretentious reverence that once elevated every day mediocrity to an art form."

Written and directed by Gemini Award winner, Matt Zimbel and Jean François Gratton. Zimbelism is opening at the 2016 Hot Docs Festival, North America’s largest documentary film festival running in Toronto April 28th to May 8th.
