The tragic story of Francesca Woodman, a young photographer renowned for her extraordinary nude self-portraits, The Woodmans is also the story of her brilliantly artistic family. Director C. Scott Willis shows how the struggle for fame in the high-stakes world of art resulted in tragedy, and then in healing and redemption.
As a family, the Woodmans are noted for their talent.  Betty Woodman, in particular, is an internationally renowned ceramicist whose work has been shown at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

By piecing together Francesca's photos, never-before-seen experimental videos and personal journals, and through candid conversations with George and Betty Woodman, Charlie Woodman and a host of friends, Willis depicts four lives committed to art, and whose art lives through them.
It is an extraordinary debut film that explores what it truly means to create.
