Eve and Marilyn

UK, 1987 (MIFF 2007, Magnum In Motion)

Director: Eve Arnold

Eve and Marilyn

In Eve and Marilyn, Arnold spotlights her relationship with Marilyn Monroe, whom she photographed possibly more than any other photographer over a certain period. This film raises fascinating questions about the relationship between the portrait photographer and the sitter, especially when the sitter is one of the most admired screen goddesses of the 20th century.
