The focus of the film is Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills.
Ms. Sherman created the Untitled Film Stills from 1977 to 1980. Totaling 69 images, it is arguably her most coveted series.
In the photographs, she poses as fictitious characters, shot as if they were glossy movie promotions. Armed with closets full of vintage clothes, wigs and makeup, she transformed herself into different personas, from blond bombshell and sex kitten to lone hitchhiker and all-American housewife.
Comprised of interviews, archival footage and 16mm film of the photograph’s original locations, the film draws you into Cindy’s world early in her career.
