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.

Insightful contrasts between . . .a fierce public persona of independence and the emotional compromises of a woman in the throes of passionate and erotic love.

...with cinematographer Sophia Constantinou, and a haunting musical score by Laura Karpman and Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum, Kates has created a fact-based profile, but with boldly evocative impressionist strokes that mirror the complexity of Sontag's life...
