Regarding Susan Sontag
Speakers: Nancy Kates, independent filmmaker; Ellen Spiro, Univ. of Texas, Austin
This special event focuses on the 2014 documentary film Regarding Susan Sontag, directed by Nancy Kates. Ellen Spiro addresses questions of visual style and narrative approach, and Kates shows clips from the film. Our hope is that the audience and the panelists engage in a conversation about the documentary material, Sontag and her legacy, and other issues raised by the film and her work.
