Meg Hamel talks about Bill Cunningham, obsession and the Wisconsin Film Festival
In introducing "Bill Cunningham New York" last night, Wisconsin Film Festival Director Meg Hamel says you didn't have to be into fashion to enjoy the documentary about the New York Times photojournalist and photographer of street fashion. Hamel says she enjoys it as a documentary about the 80-plus-year-old Cunningham's obsession with his art. She also notes how obsession seems to be a theme of a number of documentaries at the Festival. I loved the movie, will post more about it when I get a moment.
