Can’t wait until Sunday for the next Mad Men? Well, hurry on over to the Cinema Village Theatre tonight or tomorrow to catch the documentary Bert Stern: Original Mad Man. This thrilling biography covers the life and work of one of American photography’s all-time greats, known for capturing the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Twiggy, and the infamous Lolita image from Stanley Kubrick’s film.
Stern’s work on Madison Avenue helped shape the state of modern advertising, which earned him the credit of original “Mad Man.” Shannah Laumeister’s account of this pioneer has received many accolades for its “shockingly frank” exploration of Stern’s creativity, celebrity, and desire to have it all. Don’t miss this chance to see it in theaters. For other show times in cities around the US, click HERE.
