The Times of Bill Cunningham chronicles the life of the late, legendary New York street photographer and fashion historian through his own words — mining a recently unearthed six-hour interview that chronicles his days moonlighting as a milliner in France during the Korean War, to his unique relationship with First Lady Jackie Kennedy, his four decades at The New York Times and his democratic view of fashion and society. Narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, The Times of Bill Cunningham features photographs chosen from over 3 million previously unpublicized images and documents from Cunningham’s personal archives.
“This well-researched dive into mid-century social history treats viewers to a cornucopia of delicious photographs to accompany Cunningham’s narration, plunging us into a world that feels both immediate and heartbreakingly gone forever.” — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“If you have a subject as delightful and forthcoming as the self-invented shutterbug, not to mention decades’ worth of fabulous footage and photographic records of high and low fashion, you really can’t have too much of a good thing.” — David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
“The Times of Bill Cunningham is only 74 minutes long, yet it’s a snapshot of a life that leaves you grateful for having encountered it.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
