Next Monday 30th November Universal Pictures will release Audrey, Helena Coan‘s documentary on Audrey Hepburn. The doc promises to chronicle the tumultuous life of the Hollywood star, fashion icon, Humanitarian.
We all know about the glamourous films she starred in during the 1950’s and 1960’s. In this short but sweet new preview/Featurette Audrey Hepburn was more than an Icon, she was ‘magnetic’…
A hybrid of rare archive and intimate interviews including her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, Givenchy’s former Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller and Tiffany’s Design Director emeritus John Loring, this film brings a truly extraordinary woman to life, who stands as testament to the power of love and forgiveness.
Audrey Hepburn won her first Academy Award at the age of 24 and went on to become one of the world’s greatest cultural icons: a once-in-a-generation beauty, and legendary star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, whose style and pioneering collaboration with Hubert de Givenchy continues to inspire. But who was the real Audrey Hepburn?
Malnourished as a child, abandoned by her father and growing up under Nazi occupation in Holland, Hepburn faced a life-long battle with the traumas of her past, which thwarted her dreams of becoming a ballet dancer, and cast a shadow over her personal life. Yet she found inner peace using her superstardom for good as a global ambassador for UNICEF and bringing her life full circle, first a victim of war, then a source of relief to millions.
Audrey will be released on DVD & Digital Download on 30 November 2020.
