Bill Cunningham New York

Directed by Richard Press
United States, 2010
  • English
  • English, Spanish


A style columnist for the New York Times and an unlikely man-about-town, Bill Cunningham travels around New York City by bike, taking photos of street fashion. A legendary photographer, but averse to attention, Cunningham finally agreed to step in front of the camera for this documentary.

Our take

A New York icon, the legendary fashion and street photographer Bill Cunningham’s candid shots capture the pulse of the city. This exuberant hit documentary gives him a much-deserved close-up, a joyful celebration of a man and the town he took as his subject.
