1994 NR

Peter Watkins's challenging, unorthodox feature on the life of Swedish dramatist August Strindberg uses a mixture of methods to depict the tumultuous life of the iconoclast, including staged interviews, improvisation, photographs and written text. Created to give each individual viewer a unique experience, the biography's seemingly random structure and multilayering of media types invites myriad diverging interpretations and reactions.
