Summary One of a series of biographical documentaries whose focus is on the integration of the artists' lives and works. Examines the life and work of the artist, Betye Saar. Uses examples of her art, her comments about her career and the comments of friends and colleagues. Shows how her fascination with the mystical and the unknown merges with her social concerns as a Black American. Her provocative and powerful assemblages, often employing discarded objects, reveal her interest in Caribbean culture and her ability to liberate stereotyped black images from derogatory contexts, thus creating new levels of awareness. Includes several sequences of her at work on her assemblages.
