IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment.

THE MAYSLES WAY: GREY GARDENS
Multiple screenings May 14 - 17, 2015
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
Grey Gardens is the unbelievable but true story of Mrs. Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Mother and daughter live in a world of their own behind the towering privets that surround their decaying 28-room East Hampton mansion known as "Grey Gardens," a place so far gone that the local authorities once threatened to evict them for violating building and sanitation codes. The incident made national headlines -- American royalty, living in squalor! For the Beales were nothing short of the upper crust. Mrs. Beale, a.k.a. "Big Edie," was a born aristocrat, sister of "Black Jack" Bouvier, Jackie O's father. "Little Edie" was an aspiring actress of striking beauty who put her New York life on hold to care for her mother - and never left her side again. Together they descended into a strange life of dependence and eccentricity that no one had ever shared until the Maysles arrived with their camera and tape recorder.

Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
The landmark documentary about the tragically ill-fated Rolling Stones free concert at Altamont Speedway on December 6, 1969. Only four months earlier, Woodstock defined the Love Generation; now it lay in ruins on a desolate racetrack six miles outside of San Francisco. Before an estimated crowd of 300,000 people, the Stones headlined a free concert featuring Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers and others. Concerned about security, members of outlaw biker gang The Hell's Angels were asked to help maintain order. Instead, an atmosphere of fear and dread arose, leading ultimately to the stabbing death of a fan. What began as a flower-power love-in had degenerated into a near riot; frightened, confused faces wondering how the Love Generation could, in one swift, cold-blooded slash, became a generation of disillusionment and disappointment.

THE MAYSLES WAY: ISLANDS
Thursday, May 28, 7:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
For two brief weeks in May of 1983, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Surrounded Islands blossomed on the waters of Biscayne Bay, Florida. Eleven scrub-pine islands were surrounded by 6.5 million square feet of bright pink fabric. A three-year struggle, a work of art; a political drama interwoven with two other projects-in-progress; the wrapping of the Pont Neuf in Paris and the Reichstag in Berlin. This film goes beyond art. In each one of their projects, Christo and Jeanne-Claude fuse country, culture, and economics. Instead of museums, their mammoth 'sculptures' need space...and people. Their works are collective efforts, designed to evolve with community input. From raucous public debates with Miami officials to a private tour of Christo's studio with politico Willy Brandt; from intimate discussions with Jacques Chirac, the Mayor of Paris, to frantic boat rides between islands during the final unfurling. The artists are at work, probing, politicking, debating the meaning of art-- creating the social impact that gives each project its strength.

Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.
