Summary *Coarse Language*Sunday Best screening Sunday nights on ABC2, is the home of an outstanding collection of game-changing and thought-provoking feature length documentaries. We've done the work to bring you the best must- see intelligent docos that are just too good to miss."We all get dressed for Bill," says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. The 'Bill' in question is the 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this bike riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirees for the Times Style section in his columns 'On the Street' and 'Evening Hours.'Documenting uptown fixtures (Anna Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller - who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham's enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair.In turn, Bill Cunningham: New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Bill Cunningham: New York is a Zeitgiest film. Director/Cinematographer Richard Press. Producer Philip Gefter
