Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine

A film journey inside the life and imagination of an icon of modern art. As a screen presence, Louise Bourgeois is magnetic, mercurial and emotionally raw. As an artist, she has for six decades been at the forefront of successive new developments, but always on her own powerfully inventive and disquieting terms. At the age of 71, in 1982, she became the first woman to be honored with a major retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art. In the decades since, she has created her most powerful and persuasive work. Structured around a series of interviews conducted between 1993 and 2007, this film is a drama of creativity and revelation.
