Every now and then, a documentary comes along, opening a door into the life of someone extraordinary ~ a fellow New Yorker ~ like the documentary, Jay Myself, about Jay Maisel’s move from the historic Germania Bank building he called home for more than 50 years, or Bill Cunningham’s friend and neighbor, Editta Sherman in the documentary, Lost Bohemia.
The Times of Bill Cunningham is another such documentary, built around an interview that Mark Bozek had with New York Times street photographer, Bill Cunningham.
The documentary, running 1 hour and 14 minutes, is written and directed by Mark Bozek, narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, and features photographs from over 3 million previously unpublicized images and documents from Cunningham.
Now showing at Village East Cinema with extremely limited engagement.
Looking back at Celebrating Bill Cunningham at New York Historical Society in 2018.
