The lush optically-printed scenes take Gretchen’s point of view from her punk youth, a stay in a mental hospital, and her release into the big city. Scripted scenes are inter-spliced with documentary and found footage, illustrating the culture Gretchen lives in, her inner world and relationships from her birth to her final day.</p> <details><summary>Runtime: 38</summary> <summary>Release date: 1997-05-09</summary></details> </article>
