Iris – A Movie about Fashion Star Iris Apfel
Documentary | 90 minutes | 2016
Iris pairs the late documentarian Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter), then 87, with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. Iris portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art, and people are her sustenance. She reminds us that dressing — and indeed, life — is nothing but a grand experiment. "If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows." - POV/PBS website. This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV.
In keeping with the theme of the movie, come wearing your most fun and innovative clothes and jewelry. Prizes will be awarded for the most head-turning outfit. This program will be one that everyone will enjoy!
