Schweiz / Deutschland 1994/1995, Dokumentarfilm


For Godard, she played the short-haired young American hawking the Herald Tribune on the Champs-Elysées.

Jean Seberg - American Actress confronts the highly precise and typified image of the actress (a Hollywood star before becoming French New Wave muse) with the individual she was in private - until her suicide in 1979. In this way, the film takes stock of the existential abyss that opens to someone who has been so greatly determined by the image. Using film clips, private interviews, press photos and phone conversations, this filmic biography attempts a chronological review of the career of Jean Seberg, with special attention given to each of the documents used, keenly pointing out the tragedy of a woman who could no longer tell the difference between fiction and reality because she was caught up in the cogwheels of the motion picture industry.
