Released in 2007.
Plot line: This film traces the artistic self-realization of Annie Leibovitz, from childhood through the death of her beloved friend, Susan Sontag, and includes snippets of Leibovitz's last visual memories of Sontag. The film traces the arc of her photographic life, her aspirations to artistry, and the trajectory of her career through phases that included the tumultuous sixties in Berkeley, CA., touring with the Rolling Stones, a mentorship by Hunter S. Thompson, and, later, capturing the last candid moments of John Lennon's life with Yoko Ono. It closes with her reflections on life, children, and the the wake of her relationship with Sontag. The archival material presented here is invaluable for framing an understanding of this immeasurably influential visual artist.
I stumbled upon this PBS American Masters documentary the other day. If you are even remotely interested in photography or creative art, give this biography a try. I love Annie Leibovitz's work. Yes, there is a lot of celebrity work, but her creative genius is undeniable.
You can see the movie trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
