Bill Cunningham - New York @ The Cornerhouse

I am going to see this film tomorrow night and quite looking forward to the event. I like the whole Cornerhouse set up as a movie theatre. It is very cosy and twee and should be a fun night


Bill Cunningham New York
Richard Press

New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham has, for decades, been riding around the city on his bike obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society soirĂ©es in his columns ‘On the Street’ and ‘Evening Hours’.

Regarded by the fashion elite as a true cultural anthropologist, this endearing film follows Bill as he documents uptown fixtures – from Vogue’s Anna Wintour, to philanthropist David Rockefeller, and iconic socialite Brooke Astor – downtown eccentrics and everyone in between. Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair and this delicate documentary is a funny and poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
