Babette Mangolte’s 1980 independent feature, the most fictional of her films, follows a young artist named Cathy Digby—played by the offscreen voice of Kim Ginsburg—through the downtown art scene of New York. We see the events of the film through the heroine’s eyes. Unlike Robert Montgomery’s use of the first-person camera in Lady in the Lake (1946), this film, which follows the exploration of subjectivity begun in Mangolte’s previous What Maisie Knew, reportedly uses the technique in order to challenge the viewer’s own sympathies and alliances—which suggests a use of subjectivity somewhat closer to Orson Welles’s first Hollywood project, his unfilmed adaptation of Heart of Darkness.
