1920s Paris endures as one of the most romanticized periods in the history of art and letters. Weaving interviews, anecdotes, and home movies, this dynamic documentary provides an illuminating look at the lives—and loves-—of the female intellectual all-stars of the Left Bank, Gertrude Stein and her partner Alice B. Toklas and the pioneer of modernist queer lit, Djuna Barnes (Nightwood) among them. (Nov ’96)
