"The Times of Bill Cunningham," a film by Mark Bozek

The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall

Join us for the screening of The Times of Bill Cunningham followed by a conversation with the Director/Writer, Mark Bozek, Executive Producer, Susan Rockefeller, Vouge Fashion Editor/Stylist Tonne Goodman, and students from varying programs across The New School. 

With access to over 3 million previously unpublicized images and documents from the archive of legendary street photographer and fashion historian Bill Cunningham, first-time filmmaker Mark Bozek provides a wholly unique insight into the New York and fashion legend.

Told in Cunningham’s own words from a recently unearthed interview from 1994, the photographer chronicles in his customarily cheerful and plainspoken manner, moonlighting as a milliner in France while in the army during the Korean War, his move to New York in 1948, his unique relationship with First Lady Jackie Kennedy, his beginnings as a photographer, and his liberated and wholly democratic view of fashion. Narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Presented by the Parsons School of Design
