IRIS

(2014) dir Albert Maysles w/Iris Apfel, Carl Apfel [83 min; DCP]
The latest film from legendary documentarian Albert Maysles (GREY GARDENS), IRIS pairs the late 88-year-old filmmaker (who passed away on March 5) 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 life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment.

“Iris’s adventurous outfits have made her a muse for millennial fashion designers as Little Edie has for generations past.” – Chelsea Spear, Brattle Film Notes
