1975 – directed by Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer
ALBERT MAYSLES in person for post-screening Q&A!
Nearly 30 years since its release (and one Broadway adaptation and high profile HBO remake later), this essential documentary remains as hilarious and heartbreaking as ever. Reclusive relatives of Jackie Onassis, Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter “Little Edie” live in a decaying East Hampton mansion, passing the time by bickering and pining for the good old days. Filmmaking legends Albert & David Maysles capture this endearing portrait with warmth, wit and intimacy. If you haven’t seen it or you’ve seen it a hundred times, it will always be a “must-see.”
