The late Adri­enne Rich was a bridge between the near-invis­i­bil­i­ty of women writ­ers, fem­i­nist writ­ers, and les­bian writ­ers, and their larg­er pres­ence today.This doc­u­men­tary draws on inter­views and read­ings from 1983 to 2000, to por­tray the late fem­i­nist writer’s his­to­ry, her activism, and her poet­ry.
Note: As with many archival record­ings pre­served on open reel, some of these record­ings suf­fer from print-through” — a ghost­ly echo or pre-echo. Think of it as adding a haunt­ing qual­i­ty to the late writer’s words.
