LARGER THAN LIFE: THE KEVYN AUCOIN STORY
DOC NYC, Full Frame, Cleveland, Edinburgh
A portrait of a too-soon-departed fashion world pioneer.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC, saying:
Moving to New York City from small town Louisiana in the early 1980s, Kevyn Aucoin found acceptance as a gay man and success in the fashion world. Developing an often overlooked profession into an influential art form, Aucoin became the go-to makeup artist for – and fast friends with – supermodels and celebrities until his tragic death at the age of 40. Tiffany Bartok offers an intimate look at a legendary figure who made people beautiful.
