Movie Details

From the very onset of her career, artist Margaret Mellis never hesitated to carve her own path or assert her individualism - from the massively-scaled abstractions she created in the 1960s and 1970s, through her unusual driftwood reliefs erected in later years. Director Sue Giovanni's Margaret Mellis: A Life in Color constitutes one of the first biographical portraits of Mellis; it provides an on-camera panorama of her work, interspersed between interviews with the artist and recitations from her memoirs by the actress Susannah York (Tom Jones). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
