Fashionable Film Night: Advanced Style


Ari Seth Cohen is a fashionista with a difference. Since 2008 his Advanced Fashion blog has chronicled the genius of New York’s most sartorially creative seniors.

Having already spawned an immensely popular book, Cohen’s luxuriously bedecked ladies now arrive on the big screen in a blaze of colour. The older one gets, the less one feels bound by convention: many of the interviewees in this film – whose ages range from early 60s to mid-90s – regard their ‘fashionably’ dressed younger counterparts with bemused condescension. Instead these are women who dress for the ‘theatre of life’ in their own inimitable ways, whether that means the sleek chic of classic haute couture or the free-spirited eccentricity of false eyelashes made from one’s own vividly dyed hair.

Without shying away from the challenges and infirmities that old age also brings, Advanced Style is a joyous celebration of those who refuse to stop being fabulous.

Advanced Style, dir. Ari Seth Cohen, US 2014, 75 mins

Please note that all films are 18+ unless otherwise stated. The feature will start approximately 15 minutes after the listed start time.

    I've changed the date to next week, as it is showing in Cinema 1 then and tickets should be more widely available. Somebody else will have to host though, as I'm not available that day.

    If anyone bought their ticket already but can't make it, please contact me so I can buy it off you, I tried to buy the ticket this morning but the 6.45pm performance is full and not selling anymore tickets. Thanks Alison.
