The Joy of Life

The Joy of Life

Available on iTunes
A blending of documentary and experimental narrative strategies, combining stunning 16mm landscape cinematography with a bold, lyrical voice-over to share two San Francisco stories: the history of the Golden Gate Bridge as "suicide landmark," and the story of a butch dyke in San Francisco searching for love and self-discovery. The Joy of Life is a film about landscapes, both physical and emotional.
Starring Harriet Dodge, Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Director Jenni Olson
