An immersion in Dora Maar’s photography and painting, the film follows the dazzling path of a unique woman, giving the “Weeping Woman” her full measure and identity. Once freed from that association, her work imposes itself as both essential and singular, revealing a complete artist, entirely of her time, as well as a multi-facetted woman in search of truth and the absolute.
