Filmmakers Gallery: Grey Gardens w/ Tony Maietta + Jerry Torre!
July 11 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
They’re Back! Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.
Please join The Filmmakers’ Gallery on Thursday, July 11th from 6-10pm on a special day to honor “GREY GARDENS”(the original documentary) for a very exclusive book signing and screening! This is the follow up event to our screening from August of last year, when we presented, “THE BEALES OF GREY GARDENS” -the sequel to the original documentary.
