Storyline

Insightful digital portrait of artist Fargo Deborah Whitman, who has "dissociative personality disorder" (formerly called "multiple personality disorder"). Whitman provides an intimate glimpse into many of her various personae (a young child named Genie; 18 year-old Anton; Gibbon; Meticulous; and others), and director Chandler has shown great sensitivity to her extraordinary subject, and the film is by turns startling, shocking, and inspiring. Written by Matt Severson

Why isn't this film available on video???
28 June 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure if the filmmaker or other people involved with this film will read this -- but: with the success that this film at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, where it won Best Doc, why has no one picked this up for home video? This is a fantastic film, and I know there are so many this could touch and help....

Anyway -- I would just like more people to have an opportunity to see this.

At the screening we saw of this, both the director and Deborah Fargo (am I spelling this correctly?) were there and I found both of them very inspiring.

Does anyone have any info??? thanks, Matt
