Produced by David Oliver in 1916 (and presented here by David’s grandson, Vancouver actor/filmmaker Mark Oliver), Louis Neher’s surreal Christmas movie Im Reich der Zwerge is a hallucinatory experience. Its cutting-edge trick photography will takes audiences deep underground to a subterranean world where a young girl must plead her case before the king of the elves. Screening with live musical accompaniment.
Meet Iris Apfel, doyenne of New York fashion, and more importantly an indomitable and inspiring life force well into her ninth decade. Quick-witted and always flamboyantly dressed, Iris retains her enthusiasm for fashion, art and people. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. "I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."
"A joyous celebration of creativity and razor-sharp wit sustained into old age, as evinced by outspoken nonagenarian fashion icon Iris Apfel." Variety
