Directed by Greta Schiller

In the early decades of the 20th century, Paris was the undisputed artistic capital of the world. Cultural titans Gertrude Stein, Colette, Djuna Barnes, painter Marie Laurencin, publishers and booksellers Sylvia Beach and Adrienne Monnier, and New Yorker journalist Janet Flanner (not to mention Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso and James Joyce) were all part of the between-the-wars Left Bank inner circle. Utilizing groundbreaking research, newly-discovered home movies and intimate storytelling that intertwines interview with anecdote, this award-winning documentary re-creates the mood and flavor of a unique female artistic community who flocked to the City of Lights during its most magical era.


DVD Extras Include:

- Rare home movies of Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Colette, Pablo Picasso, art dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler,Thornton Wilder and poet Paul Valery
- Additional interviews illuminating Stein’s connections with Hemingway and James Joyce
- Archival photo gallery of the period
- Biographies of the filmmakers and selected film subjects

The documentary director Greta Schiller’s examination of Paris modernism gives this world of literary salons and unconventional bookshops a surprising amount of verve. Giants like Picasso, Joyce, Janet Flanner, Djuna Barnes, and Gertrude Stein come across as positively fun-loving, and Paris blooms like a rose.

It's enough to make you leave your spouse and move to Paris!

Time travel to golden ages doesn't exist, but documentaries like Paris Was a Woman—with their interviews, home movies, archival film and photographs—are the next best thing.
