Through her work for Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Vogue, Annie Leibovitz has produced some of the most iconic images of the last 30 years. She's shot the rich and famous, the profound and powerful, the exceptional and notorious. Her camera has documented the horrors of war - most recently in Sarajevo and Rwanda. Masterful at exposing her photographic subjects, Annie's own life has been private and protected. In this film, she made the decision to bare her artistic process, her personal journey and her delicate balancing of fame and family to the camera - a camera that was vigilantly pointed by a filmmaker who is her younger sister. Features interviews with Mikhail Baryshnikov, Tina Brown, Graydon Carter, Rosanne Cash, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Whoopi Goldberg, Mick Jagger, Bette Midler, Demi Moore, Mark Morris, Yoko Ono, Keith Richards, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Patti Smith, Gloria Steinem, Jann Wenner, Anna Wintour, and family members. Life through a Lens reveals a woman who has become as iconic as the people she photographs.
