This insightful documentary about Diane Arbus was made in 1972 at the time of a retrospective of her work by the Museum of Modern Art, a year after her death and a feature at the Venice Biennale. It explains her work through interviews with her daughter, friends, critics and also in her own words.

Diane Arbus created powerful portraits of people on the fringes of society, odd types, circus freaks and ordinary unglamorous people. This was in stark contrast to the fashion and commercial work she and her husband where doing for Vogue and Glamour. Norman Mailer said once of her: “Giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like giving a hand grenade to a baby.”
