“I was not looking for my dreams to interpret my life, but rather for my life to interpret my dreams.” – Susan Sontag
Susan Sontag is one of the most celebrated political, literary, and feminist icons of our time. An innate wordsmith and an intellectual iconoclast, Sontag examined the depths of the human experience as well as the most pertinent issues of her day. Sontag was a profound supporter of gay rights and sexual exploration, as well as a pioneer of documenting and interpreting war-ravished devastation throughout the world.
She was dark, mysterious, and most importantly, she questioned, relentlessly. Regarding Susan Sontag is an “intimate and nuanced investigation into the life of one of the most influential and and provocative thinkers of the 20th century.” The documentary, which premiers this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, is narrated by actress Patricia Clarkson, directed by Nancy Kates, and features dramatic interviews and never seen footage of Susan.
Watch the trailer here and look out for the documentary to hit theaters in the fall of 2014.
