Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
From 1 December, London's Bertha DocHouse cinema is screening Love, Cecil (2017 / 99 mins) the new film from documentarian Lisa Immordino Vreeland. The film is a portrait of the celebrated and sometimes controversial photographer and costume designer, Cecil Beaton, who won multiple Academy Awards for his work on Gigi and My Fair Lady.
Tracking his fifty year career which spanned multiple worlds from British royalty to fashion to Hollywood, Love, Cecil offers a warm yet frank reflection of his life. Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict) weaves passages from Beaton’s diaries – voiced by Rupert Everett – with archival interviews featuring his famous friends and foes to bring Beaton’s world to life.
