‘The Story of I’ (1997) by Jo Anne Kaplan

One Kaplan leading to another, I would like to bring The Story of I (1997) to your attention.


I first heard of this film when it came out, and since then, its director Jo Anne Kaplan (1945-2016) has died.

The film is based on Story of the Eye by Georges Bataille and it consists of a Kaplan reading her own paraphrase of that Bataille novel which I bought when visiting Atlanta, Georgia when I worked for Microsoft.
