Director & Producer will be there on April 8th.

Bill Cunningham is obsessively interested in only one thing—the pictures he takes that document the way people dress. “We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the New York Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Bill has lived in the same small studio above Carnegie Hall for fifty years, never eats in restaurants and gets around on a worn-out bicycle—his sole means of transportation. The contradiction of his monk-like existence and the extravagance of his photographic subject matter is one aspect of his private life revealed in the movie. Documenting uptown fixtures (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. Official Web Site

 

 

TOMORROW: R/GA Speaker Series; Creative Connect


R/GA Creative Connect with Ninive Calegari

This Friday – April 8th, 2011

4:30 – 6:00 pm

R/GA office at 35 South Park Street San Francisco.

Please come and help us spread the word about the event!

Nínive Calegari
is nationally recognized for being an inspiring advocate improving and reshaping education. She is also a veteran teacher, a cofounder and former executive director of 826 Valencia. Ninive has lead a range of creative efforts that have built educational communities, spread awareness on challenges in the educational system and brought positive change. In collaboration with a large network of volunteers, Ninive has reached communities locally in the Bay Area and through out the United States. At R/GA Creative Connect Spring Series, Ninive will present the current work for a film called American Teachers. This documentary is largely based on a New York Times bestselling book she co-authored with Daniel Moultrhop and Dave Eggers, called Teachers Have It Easy: The Big Sacrifices and Small Salaries of America’s Teachers. It is also a part of her greater work as a founder of The Teacher Salary Project. The hope is to change the way America values and rewards effective teachers. The lecture will also be an opportunity to discuss the current situation, developments and challenges that the students, teachers, parents, community and even country at large face in the current political, economic and global climate.
