Louise Bourgeois

Summary: A documentary attempting to shed light on what makes fascinatingly fractious Louise Bourgeois, one of the world’s greatest living artists, tick.

RIP nyt: Louise Bourgeois
Influential Sculptor, Dies at 98

Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine is an intimate encounter with the 96-year-old sculptress that includes film and video archive of Bourgeois’s life and art. American filmmakers, Amei Wallach (in her directorial debut) and Marion Cajori (who died of cancer shortly before the film was completed), focus on interviewing Bourgeois in her Brooklyn studio, along with her son Jean-Louis and long-time assistant Jerry Gorovoy.
