Iris

“A captivating salute to the proud flag-bearer for individuality”
– The Hollywood Reporter

The last film of the late legendary filmmaker Albert Maysles features Iris Apfel, a 93-year-old interior designer, businesswoman, and style maven whose impact on New York fashion scene can be traced back decades.

She is a singular women, quick-witted and flamboyantly dressed, who reminds us that an outfit – and one’s life in general – may be nothing but a bold experiment.

Despite the abundance of glamour in her life, Iris still embraces the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression.

More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity, and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. «I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows,» Iris says.
