Pemilihan genre biografi sebagai cara tutur memudahkan penonton untuk mengikuti rangkaian peristiwa yang dialami tokoh hingga membentuk ekspresi personal dalam setiap karya-karyanya.

Episode kali ini, membahas ekspresi personal Risman Marah sebagai seorang maestro fotografer. Risman Marah, bukan nama asing bagi dunia fotografi Indonesia. Karya, kepakaran, hingga dedikasinya tak perlu diragukan lagi. Namun, seperti apa kehidupan Risman Marah dahulu kala?

His work, expertise, and dedication need no further confirmation. However, what was Risman Marah's life like in the past? How did the natural environment and conditions of that time influence his journey in the world of photography? It is believed that the stories beyond the photography process also play a significant role in his contributions to the world of photography, both as an educator and practitioner. These questions will be addressed by exploring visual archives of the subject and retelling them through the medium of a documentary film to provide a comprehensive understanding of Risman Marah's life, thoughts, and works. The documentary filmmaking process involves pre-production, production, and post-production stages.
