Regarding Susan Sontag

Regarding Susan Sontag
dir. Nancy Kates/USA/2014/100 min.
Kinoteka, sala 1

“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, who remained passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her whole career.

The documentary explores Sontag’s life through archive materials, accounts from her friends, family, colleagues, and lovers, as well as her very own words, as read by Patricia Clarkson. From her early infatuation with books to her first experience in a lesbian bar; from her earlyunfortunate 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.
