Filmed by Pennebaker in 1971, but the rushes were consigned to the filmmaker's vaults as unusable after their initial viewing. After meeting and marrying Pennebaker in the mid-1970s, Chris Hegedus discovered the footage and edited together the final version of the film for release in 1979. The film went on to enjoy a five-year cinematic release in the United Kingdom. See more »
I'm in my early twenties - so Norman Mailer, Susan Sontag and Germaine Greer were mostly famous names to me. After stumbling across this documentary on tv I got hooked though. Seeing highly intelligent people debating is almost always entertaining, and there are many fantastic moments in this documentary. The arguments and the characters are marked by their time (the debate takes place in 1971), but it paints an interesting picture of the different aspects of the gender debate in that period. Seeing the documentary today is an excellent way of getting a perspective on the feminist debate today and comparing.
