Bill Cunningham New York
A Stunning Eye
Legendary photographer Bill Cunningham has been capturing the trends of New York City for more than 40 years, animating changes in fashion and social evolution through his lens. After decades of directing his camera to the masses for the New York Times styles pages, Cunningham is given his own spotlight in Bill Cunningham New York, a compelling documentary from filmmakers Richard Press and Philip Gefter. The film offers a tender exploration of an artist as enthralled with his profession as he is with the world around him. Cunningham works almost as an anthropologist, documenting the way people move and dress to discover ethereal, yet universal, connections between them. Here, Press and Gefter dig feverishly into the deeper aspects of this talented artist’s work. Dive in to a discussion of their search for the true nature of an unfailingly passionate man.
