Advanced Style The Movie Comes Out Today

I can’t believe that the Advanced Style documentary is finally hitting US theaters starting today! Lina Plioplyte, director of the film, and I met six years ago when I first moved to NYC. She was working at a coffee shop and we admired one another’s crazy mix of paisley and tropical patterns and I asked if we could be friends. I told her that I wanted to start a blog where I photographed some of the most stylish, vital, and interesting older people in New York and she told me that she was just about to start a position at a fashion magazine making videos. Lina and I ran into each other about a month later at a gallery. She had been seeing my posts on Advanced Style and asked if she could make a few videos of the ladies for my blog. We started with Debra Rapoport and interviewed her about her style. From there we moved on to Tziporah and Ilona and quickly realized that these videos were about much more than just style. The ladies began to open up to us and share their lives and secrets to their incredible vitality. Lina and I became so captivated by their stories that we couldn’t stop filming.

We are thrilled beyond belief to be able to finally share our film with everyone starting this weekend. Lina, The Ladies and I will be doing a series of Q&A’s at the Quad Cinema all weekend and the film will be playing several times through the end of next week. For tickets to NYC screenings CLICK HERE or head to The Quad Cinema, 34 West 13th Street, NY, NY 10011.

We couldn’t have gotten here without all of your support. Thank you to everyone who has been following our journey over the last four years and a special thanks to all of our incredible Kickstarter Supporters. We hope to see everyone at the theater this weekend!

    I've just started following your blog (although I've been aware of it for some time), and posted about the documentary yesterday: I can't wait to get a chance to see the documentary at some point. Best of luck with the US release. I'm really excited about what you are doing. We throw away so much when we only look at the young. These men and women give me someone to look up to as I get older.

  • Just saw the movie and enjoyed seeing the energy, spunk and the artistic eye each one of these women bring to world. Great clothes, accessories and just a great prespective of life as an andult female. Dont miss it, the documentary has a message.

  • Just bought a pair of tix for the last Q&A screening — can't wait to see this tomorrow!

  • Ari–saw the film last night–absolutely brilliant! Thank you for giving these inspiring women the platform they so deserve. You and Lina created a wonderful and compelling love story–thank you!!!

  • Just read the NY Times review.
    Haters gonna Hate.
    Totally not worth the time or effort to enlighten their narrow boring minds.
    And as far as what "younger" people think…who gives a shit.

    Wish it would come down to Jacksonville, Florida….sometimes one just starves to see people with original style not just following the everyday trend.

  • Thank you for showcasing these beautiful women!
