Directed by Albert Maysles
83 min | 2014 | USA | PG-13
The final film from legendary documentarian Albert Maysles (director of Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter), IRIS pairs the late 88-year-old filmmaker 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, IRIS is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire.
