General Note:
Inspired by the book "Diane Arbus: a biography" by Patricia Bosworth.

"This is a film about Diane Arbus, but it is not a historical biography. Arbus, who lived from 1923 to 1971, is considered by many to be one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. Certainly, her pictures changed the face of American photography forever. What you are about to see is a tribute to Diane: a film that invents characters and situations that reach beyond reality to express what might have been Arbus's inner experience on her extraordinary path."--Pre-title screen.

Originally released as a motion picture in 2006.

Special features: Deleted scenes (with optional commentary by director Steven Shainberg): Diane sees the doctor, David lectures Allan; Fur: HBO first look; Feature commentary with director Steven Shainberg; Theatrical trailer; Sneak peeks; DVD-ROM/online features.
