(Shannah Laumeister, US 2012, 89 min., DCP)
Special Presentation. After working alongside Stanley Kubrick at Look magazine, Bert Stern became an original Madison Avenue “mad man,” his images helping to create modern advertising. (He also directed the film Jazz on a Summer’s Day, screening July 9.) Groundbreaking photos of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot, and Twiggy, coupled with his astonishing success in advertising, minted Stern as a celebrity in his own right. Filmmaker Shannah Laumeister uncovers all aspects of Stern, from his badboy antics to his iconic photography.
