Every so often I will see a movie whose essence reflects a strong independent vision, purpose and soul. The movie can be fictional or documentary but the common thread is a story that focuses on the goals and aspirations of an individual or individuals whose  commitment, and sometimes sacrifice to succeed becomes a powerful testament to the human potential. My goal with Artist As Brand is to see a world filled with empowered art spirits sharing their art and stories, being appreciated and supported. I love films that remind us to stay true to our dreams and not to give up.

Bill Cunningham is an 80+ New York Times photographer. For decades he has been chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” This documentary is about an artist who works in industry, but you almost never know it because of  Cunningham’s passion for his craft, humanity and love of people. You will be touched by Bill Cunningham New York, directed by Richard Press.

If you have other films you feel have a strong AAB message please share them with us.
