Directed by Albert Maysles

United States 2014 78 mins. In English

The great documentarian Albert Maysles’s (Grey GardensGimme Shelter) latest film is about fashion and interior design maven Iris Apfel, now 93 years old, as she celebrates the late wave of career popularity enjoyed on the heels the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2006 exhibition “Rare Bird of Fashion” featuring her collection of often affordably priced fashion accessories. Maysles, himself 89, who pops up from time to time as a cheerful on-camera presence, follows Iris as she makes selections for the touring exhibition, advises young women on their fashion choices, and bargains with store owners, usually in the company of her husband of 66 years, Carl, now 100. In all, testimony that creativity knows no age.
