Maysles, Albert & David - Grey Gardens Rb (1976) (Criterion Collection Uk Import)
Releasedatum: 18 april 2016

Documentary about two former socialites living in abject squalor in New York State in the '70s. The Maysles Brothers Albert and David are famous for capturing moments of cultural revolution and change in left-leaning documentaries like 'Gimme Shelter' the Stones documentary and their document of the Beatles' first US visit.
'Grey Gardens' documents the lives of two women, Edith Bouvier-Beale and her daughter 'Little Edie', cousins of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. The pair lived at Grey Gardens, an isolated decrepit mansion in upstate New York in utter squalor and self-imposed isolation. After their living conditions were exposed in the gutter press, Jackie Onassis convinced husband Aristotle to pay for a clean up at the mansion and this film was made during that renovation effort.
