March 15, 2018 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm$15
SEBASTOPOL– Regarding Susan Sontag will be screening at the Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival. Director Nancy Kates will join us for the screening and a discussion after the film. 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. The documentary explores Sontag’s life through 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 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. Regarding Susan Sontag was supported by California Humanities through a California Documentary Project grant.
