Regarding Susan Sontag

Regarding Susan Sontag is an intimate and nuanced investigation into the life of one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century, as well as one of the most important 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, the film is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism still resonate today.
