New Release


Fuller up close and personal

  • Blazes a path for women’s equality with love, intensity, personal toil, great deeds, and loss.

    series of scenes: women’s prison; women working in a factory; women flying the Italian flag during the Roman Revolution; suffragettes’ meeting
  • Consorts with leading thinkers of the Victorian Era.

    portraits of Ralph Waldo Emerson, George Sand, Giuseppe Mazzini, and Elizabeth Browning
  • Critiques the world around her. Abrasive in delivery, Fuller evokes both jealous disdain and admiration.
