A powerful and intimate portrait, this film captures Mitchell’s independent spirit and testifies eloquently to Mitchell’s art. She was an active participant of New York’s dynamic Abstract Expressionist scene and hung out with fellow painters Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning and Philip Guston and, soon, poets Frank O’Hara, James Schuyler and John Ashbery. This elegantly edited documentary weaves interviews with the acerbic Mitchell and other leading painters and critics while letting her stunning pictures dominate the film.
