COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Albert Maysles rencontre Iris Apfel, la célèbre décoratrice qui, à 93 ans, est toujours en activité. Femme mondaine adorant le luxe, elle n'oublie pourtant jamais qu'elle est issue d'un milieu modeste et qu'elle a grandi pendant la Grande Dépression : "Je suis heureuse de travailler".

Iris pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles 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, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. 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."
