"Yvonne Rainer's work as a filmmaker, feminist artist, choreographer, and performer has won international acclaim. She began her career in New York in the 1960s as a founder of the pioneering Judson Dance Theater. When she started making films in the mid-1970s, works such as Lives of Performers and Film About A Woman Who ... quickly established her at the forefront of independent cinema. Her work has been the subject of more than a dozen retrospectives, most recently at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and has earned her numerous honors, including fellowships from the Guggenheim and MacArthur foundations."--BOOK JACKET. "The latest volume in PAJ's Art + Performance series, A Woman Who ... is a wide-ranging collection of Rainer's interviews, essays, talks, and other writings."--BOOK JACKET.
