“A remarkable achievement! As intimate a portrayal of a living artist as one could ask for.”
-The Houston Chronicle

Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine is a mesmerizing cinematic journey inside the world of the modern art legend and feminist icon. As an artist, Louise Bourgeois has been at work for six decades—but always on her own vigorously inventive and disquieting terms. In 1982, at the age of 71, she became the first woman honored with a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. She has since gone on, in her 80s and 90s, to create her most powerful and persuasive work—massive spider sculptures that have appeared all over the world.

As a screen presence, Bourgeois is magnetic, mercurial and emotionally raw. Filmed with unparalleled access between 1993 and 2007, this documentary delicately sheds light on the methods by which her childhood traumas and memories become embodied in objects and installations. An intimate and human engagement with an artist's world, Louise Bourgeois… is a comprehensive and dramatic work of creativity and revelation.
