Regarding Susan Sontag

About

Recipient of a Special Jury Mention at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, 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. Passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. Produced and directed by Nancy Kates, the feature-length documentary explores Sontag’s life through archival footage (including first-person interviews with Sontag); accounts from friends, family, colleagues and lovers; and readings from Sontag’s books and essays by Oscar®-nominated actress Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April). From her early infatuation with books to her first experience in a gay bar, from her early marriage to her last lover, Regarding Susan Sontag is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism still resonate today, a decade after her death.
