史上最貴的攝影作品前十名,她的自拍照在拍賣會上喊價高達數百萬美金。她是辛蒂·雪曼,美國當代女攝影師與藝術家,她的攝影常以自己為主角,善用自己的身體來模擬各形各色女性的心理狀態,作品有著飽和的色彩,無意識的表情,以及濃妝和舞台般的燈光,前衛、粗糙又具時尚質感,顯現出非比尋常的魔力,總是讓人目不轉睛。

那麼,你知道在辛蒂·雪曼身邊,支持她創作的伴侶是誰嗎?獨立電視節目〈藝廊直擊〉製作人Paul Hasegawa-Overacker一向手持攝影機走遍紐約藝廊,捕捉當代藝術機制運作。在採訪女性意識強烈的辛蒂·雪曼之後,深受她創作的熱情與平易近人的個性吸引,兩人墜入愛河。只是,同在藝術領域工作的他,卻逐漸感到無力,共同進出開幕派對,媒體總是捕捉辛蒂·雪曼身影而對他視而不見…。〈我曾是辛蒂·雪曼的小白臉〉以戲謔與自我嘲諷的方式,誠實表白人性對自我認同的內在需求。同時,透過前伴侶 Paul 的貼身紀錄,我們也得以一窺辛蒂·雪曼攝影創作過程及生活化的一面。

★ Five stars ~ Time Out, New York

★ “Highly entertaining” ~ The Village Voice

Funny, irreverent, full of art world dirt and totally absorbing, this documentary is about one of the most famous artists of the 1990s, Cindy Sherman, and the the New York art world as it suddenly became a cash~fueled circus of freaks, financiers, conmen and geniuses. The film is also a tragic and mostly true romcom about a five year relationship between Sherman, the mysterious art goddess of the 90s, and a goofy, public access TV host Paul H~O. They meet. They fly to LA for gallery openings. They twirl together in the art world spotlight and fall in love. But then they ultimately break up because she is famous and he is not. The film is chock full of real art world giants ~ John Waters, Julian Schnabel, Eric Fischl, Roberta Smith and gallerist Larry Gagosian, to name just a few. Danny Devito is even in this film, though it is hard to remember why. Sherman rarely gave interviews, but as a BF and then ex~BF, Paul H~O got the goods and has here produced the most insightful look at her oeuvre and her person, all in one. Sherman was, among other things, the first master of the selfie, the art of taking your own photograph. Millions of high school girls on Instagram owe her a huge debt. She is also one of the greatest artists of her generation.
