Grey Gardens

Legendary documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles and his daughters, Rebekah and Sara answered questions in front of a full house at Cinema Arts Center in Huntington last night. The q+a and a book signing followed the screening of the immensely popular Grey Gardens a film made by Albert and his brother David in 1975. I left my camera home but managed to get a few photos with my iPhone.

A highlight of the night was Sara Maysles reading of Little Edie's letter sent to the New York Times in response to Walter Goodman's critique of Grey Gardens. The original New York Times column and Edie's rebuttal (worth reading!) can be found in a recent Times column by Alix Browne; The Moment, "Grey Gardens / The Perfect Book For The Day".
