FB_IMG_1439822662218

Documentary film-maker Albert Maysles (GREY GARDENS, GIMME SHELTER) turns his lens to Iris Apfel, style icon and muse, famous for her sharp wit as much as her flamboyant dress sense. IRIS is a story about creativity, design and of course, the incredible sartorial choices of this inspirational 93 year-old New Yorker.

IRIS portrays a 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.

To celebrate the Australian release, we are giving away 10 passes. For your chance to win tickets, please email competition@lofficiel.com.au or fill out the form on our contact us page.
