LET ME DIE A WOMAN

MAN TO WOMAN
Doris Wishman
USA 1979
72min
V'03

Doris Wishman was the most prolific female filmmaker in the history of the American cinema. Loved and reviled with equal vigour, Wishman had completed 30 films at the time of her death, primarily nudies, roughies, and other underground exploitation fare. Let Me Die a Woman, produced towards the end of her peak period, may be the first commercial documentary on the subject of transsexualism, and the public response was incendiary, due to the graphic surgery scenes, her haphazard directing style, and the questionable treatment of her subjects and actors.
