Vali: The Witch of Positano (1965)


This documentary financed by George Plimpton concerns the life of reclusive Australian artist Vali Myers. Heralded as a great artist in 1958, she married Rudi Rappolid after a failed suicide attempt. The cinéma vérité-styled feature tries to bring the viewer some semblance of her reclusive and eccentric personality. Myers eschews the public spotlight and has never agreed to sell any of her artwork to collectors, choosing instead to lead a life of quiet obscurity.
