Independent Lens | The Agony and the Ecstasy of Francesca Woodman | PBS

Duration: 01:30
Program: Independent Lens #1306
Broadcast Date: Dec. 22, 2011

The Woodmans were a family of well-known artists bonded in their belief that making art was the highest form of expression. For their daughter Francesca - one of the late 20th century's most recognized and influential photographers - fame came only after her suicide at 22. Her family was broken apart by - and in a sense healed by - art.
