This past friday No Small Plans Productions hosted the opening night and premiere of the Advanced Style documentary at Gene Siskel Film Center.
The event drew fashionable folks of all ages including some women who have been featured on the Advanced Style blog and quite a few of mother daughter duos, including April Francis and her Mama and Isa Giallorenzo of the street style blog Chicago Looks.
Style expert Amy Tara Koch did a Q and A session with Ari Seth Cohen, the producer of the film and founder of Advanced Style, and the director Lina Plioplyte (Who've I've actually photographed on the street before, see her portrait here) via Skype after the show. It was great to be able to hear Ari speak about the Advanced Style project and his larger goal of bringing attention to these vibrant, wise, stylish older folk who are routinely ignored and pushed aside for the young.

I cannot reccomend this film strongly enough, and you can catch it all next week at Gene Siskel Film Center! Check the schedule right here.
