I just wanted to share a link to this very thoughtful, in-depth article which recently appeared in the highly-respected journal FILM INTERNATIONAL. Written by Illinois Professor Tony Williams, the article goes far beyond discussing just the documentary, explaining Susan Oliver’s place and significance in the Hollywood of her era. As the filmmaker who chronicled her life in THE GREEN GIRL, it was a very reassuring personal reminder as to why it was so important for me to undertake (and complete) thus monumental project. I hope you enjoy it!
