LOS ANGELES, CA.- Zeitgeist Films in association with Kino Lorber will present the Los Angeles theatrical release of LOVE, CECIL, a documentary film by Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict). Winner of the Audience Award at the Hamptons International Film Festival, the film premiered at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival and went on to screen at a number of festivals including DOC NYC and Palm Springs International Film Festival. LOVE, CECIL will open at the Elinor Bunin/Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York on June 29, and at the Nuart in Los Angeles on July 20th. Many other cities will follow.

Set and costume designer, photographer, writer and painter Cecil Beaton was not only a dazzling chronicler, but an arbiter of his time. Cecil Beaton was probably best known for his production design for Oscar-winning films Gigi and My Fair Lady (especially the white and black Edwardian costumes for the unforgettable Ascot race) but his talents went far beyond that. Using previously unseen footage and stills, and with excerpts from his diaries wittily narrated by Rupert Everett, one gets a sense of Beaton as the furthest from “just an ordinary, anonymous person,” his lifelong fear. His world is one of utter fascination: from the Bright Young Things to the front lines of war to the international belle monde and the pages of Vogue, to his relationship with the Royal Family and his alleged affair with Greta Garbo (her picture was discovered in his bedroom among those of two of his male lovers) - Beaton embodied the cultural and political changes of the twentieth century.

Dynamic and lyrical, LOVE, CECIL is an examination of Beaton's singular sense of the visual, which dictated a style that set standards of creativity that continue to resonate and inspire today.
