Iris Apfel documentary
“Iris” is a new documentary about Iris Apfel
directed by Albert Maysles, set to open
in New York April 29.
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. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she
continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class
Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working.
If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”
