This short documentary on Diane Arbus made in 1972, a year after her death, features interviews with some of the people who knew her best including her daughter, teacher and colleagues along with a voiceover featuring some of Arbus's own words. "Going Where I've Never Been: The Photography of Diane Arbus" provides a complicated portrait of the photographer, who by all accounts was a complex artist who continues to elicit strong reactions to her work.
