The late Albert Maysles, who died March 6 at the age of 88, debuted his second-to-last feature doc “Iris” at the New York Film Festival last Fall. The film profiles iconic fashion designer Iris Apfel, who is 94. This flamboyant, colorful documentary follows the wit-spouting Apfel around New York, where a Met exhibit chronicled her history as a style maven. It just played the Miami International Film Festival where Apfel was in attendance.
Maysles’ final film, “In Transit,” which he co-directed with other filmmakers, world-premieres at Tribeca this year.
Magnolia Pictures will release “Iris” in New York on April 29, 2015, Los Angeles May 1, 2015 and additional cities throughout May.
