IRIS



A documentary about one of fashion's most influential icons, Iris Apfel from one of the most legendary documentary filmmakers, Albert Maysles. 

The film is characterized by non- other than her flamboyant outfits and quick-witty banter. This is more than just a fashion film, it is a story about creativity and how, regardless of age, one can continue to be a soaring free spirit. Although she looks like nothing more than a fashion maven, throughout the film we see how her middle-class upbringing, values and work ethic upbringing made her the women she is today.

"I feel lucky to be working, If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows." - Iris Apfel
