A question from director Catherine Gund:

"In the last five years of my work as a documentary filmmaker, I've had the sheer pleasure of focusing on two bad-ass women artists, Chavela Vargas and Elizabeth Streb. I'm wondering who are some of your most inspirational bad-ass women artists, whose life and personality drives home universal messages of bravery, independence, passion, brilliance, beauty, magic, and love?"
