Calamity Jane & Delphine Seyrig, A Story

Babette Mangolte

The film is a homage to Delphine Seyrig and her fascination for the book Calamity Jane’s Letters to her Daughter. Those letters are from a mother to an absent daughter which became a feminist landmark in the late 1970. Delphine decided to work on a film project about Calamity Jane to reveal Jane’s sensibility and insight about life in those letters to a daughter who doesn’t receive them as they are not sent. The reading of those letters permits a self-reflection about feminism and motherhood. It is also a homage to woman’s creativity and a long-term commitment to share other women stories.
