“That director Nancy Kates manages to hit so many important pivot points in Sontag’s life and career in a cinematically
engaging way feels like a small miracle.”
“Serious-minded and aesthetically ambitious…does justice to a hard-to-pigeonhole intellectual.”Hollywood Reporter
Women Make Movies is thrilled to announce that 2015 New Release REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG by Nancy Kates will be available from WMM starting March 8 – International Women’s Day!
Recipient of a Special Jury Mention at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, and has screened at 30 festivals globally, REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is an intimate and nuanced investigation into the life of one of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the 20th Century. Endlessly curious, passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. This beautifully constructed documentary, that The New York Times calls “compelling” and “perceptive,” tracks Sontag’s life through evocative experimental images, archival materials, accounts from friends, family, colleagues, and lovers, as well as her own words as read by Patricia Clarkson. From her early infatuation with books to her first experience in a gay bar; from her early marriage to her 15-year relationship with legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz, REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism continue to resonate today.
