Title Iris

Genre History, Biography, Documentary
Plot – She changed the design of the White House for nine presidents, from Truman to Clinton. They have gone, but she is still here, with the same huge round glasses, flashy accessories and the inevitable scarlet lipstick. Iris Apfel is now 93, but this does not bother her because the important things in life have remained the same: her passion for her work and her continuing experiments in style. A sometimes lively picture of this daughter of Jewish immigrants, founder with her husband of a textile company in the fifties and now interior designer and fashion guru of the Big Apple for over 60 years. A film about creativity and about the power of a free spirit that is inspired and inexhaustible.
