An affectionate portrait of renowned photographer and aesthete Cecil Beaton.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Cecil Beaton was a multi-talented photographer, writer, and painter who also designed sets and costumes for Oscar®-winning films such as MY FAIR LADY and GIGI. Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland, who has previously directed major biographies of Diana Vreeland (DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL) and Peggy Guggenheim (PEGGY GUGGENHEIM: ART ADDICT), demonstrates how Beaton intersected multiple worlds from British royalty to fashion to Hollywood.
