Belle de nuit: Grisélidis Réal, autoportraits

Mare-Eve de Grave (France, 2016, 74 min.)

This documentary about writer and sex worker Grisélidis Réal mixes audio interviews with Réal, archival footage of her from the 1960s, footage of her letters, and contemporary interviews with critics, to tell the story of her life and career.

As the word "autoportraits" in the title might suggest, the film also contains footage of numerous photobooth images of Réal, her children, and her lovers.

Thanks to Christian for the tip.
