There are some factual inaccuracies, since she is using an old Exacta 6 x 6, instead of the Speed Graphic, or the Rolleiflex, she was known to use.
It is not v. probable either that she went to bed with her Italian dealer , who is here represented as an old man, while he was almost the same age of her, and provided with a jealous fiancée :)
The lesbian scene I don't know about it either, and the locations are rather abstract. Why make her a sexual maniac? Perhaps we might make one day a better follow-up, by looking in her motivations as an artist.
The docudrama was ordered and broadcast a long time ago by a public TV, so I am told that there is no harm in downloading it for private use. It lasts 70 minutes, and is some 250 MB, in the Mpeg4 format (Quicktime).
Or you can try a direct download here: 360p
Enjoy the movie!
The opening quotation reads: 'Je est un autre' - Rimbaud. 'I is Another'
Despite the interesting placements of the actress in front of the camera, I think that finding visual metaphors and making them into emblems, is still a matter of hard thinking - like creating a crossword, if you wish.
I am told that the young actress was a beginner model, who enjoyed to stay on the other side of the camera. Francesca, liked both sides, but had to toil in order to achieve the right composition, since there was nobody in front of her.
And now an original F. Woodman's contact shot to compare :)
