Insolence raised to the status of a fine art

Despite her varied accomplishments, it seems Nelly Kaplan remains largely unknown outside of France.
The only female filmaker linked with surrealism; she is known for films that utilize her unique combination of gentleness, grotesquerie, vulgarity, boldness, and contradiction.
La Fiancee du Pirate (1969) is online (Also known as "A Very Curious Girl" and "Dirty Mary") .
It was praised by one of greatest fans Pablo Picasso as insolence raised to the status of a fine art.
(Her 1967 documentary Le Regard Picasso won a Golden Lion at Venice but seems to have practically disappeared).
