Event Details

Love, Cecil: The Life of Legendary Photographer Cecil Beaton 


  • Lisa Immordino Vreeland will participate in Q&As on Friday June 29 after the 7:15pm screening and Saturday June 30 after the 1:15pm screening. She will also introduce the 9:45pm screening on June 29 and the 3:30pm screening on June 30.

British-born Cecil Beaton was perhaps best known for his production design on Oscar-winning films like Gigi and My Fair Lady, but his talents extended far beyond cinema. From Beaton's World War II photography work for Vogue to his relationship with the Royal Family and his alleged affair with Greta Garbo, director Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict) uses previously unseen footage and stills-with excerpts from Beaton's diary, narrated by Rupert Everett-to illuminate her creative subject's ambition and inimitable sense of reinvention. A Zeitgeist Films Release in Association with Kino Lorber.

  • 2017 U.S. 98 minutes
