Nancy D. Kates
The film is an investigation into the life of one of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the 20th century. Passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. The documentary explores Sontag’s life through evocative experimental images, archival materials, accounts from friends, family, colleagues, and lovers, as well as her own words. The film is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism still resonate today.
