Grey Gardens

dir. Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer, 1975, 95 min.

Direct cinema filmmaking documents the once glorious and now ruined Long Island estate that houses an eccentric mother-daughter duo. This 28-room decaying house, infested with rodents and cobwebs, provides the material backdrop for the inhabitants and their nostalgia for past wealth, cotillions, and swimming parties.

Film to be followed by conversation.
