    Critics place Berenice Abbott at the head of her class; she was one of the greatest American photographers of the 20th Century. From her portraits of the avant-garde taken in Paris during the 1920s, to her documentation of New York in the 1930s, to her science photography of the 1950s, and her studies of small-town America, Abbott's genius is in the incredible range of her work.

    Filmed during her 91st and 92nd years, the open-hearted Abbott takes us on a guided tour of her Century. The tour teaches history, perseverance, courage, and single-minded dedication to one's chosen field.
