Love, Cecil: A Journey with Cecil Beaton
Thursday, December 7
Filmmaker and writer Lisa Immordino Vreeland talks about her experience creating a narrative of Cecil Beaton’s life through a feature documentary film and book. Oscar-winning set and costume designer, photographer, writer and painter Cecil Beaton was not only a dazzling chronicler but an arbiter of his time. From the Bright Young Things, to the front lines of war, to the international belle monde and the pages of Vogue, and then on to the Queen’s official photographer – Beaton embodied the cultural and political schisms of the twentieth century.
Love, Cecil: A Journey with Cecil Beaton is an examination of Beaton’s singular sense of the visual, which dictated a style that set standards of creativity that continue to resonate and inspire today.
Lisa Immordino Vreeland is the author of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. Her popular and innovative documentaries on Vreeland, which the Hollywood Reporter called a “vivid, delicious trip,” as well as Peggy Guggenheim have reached wide audiences. Previously a fashion entrepreneur, Immordino Vreeland was born in Milan and lives in New York City.
