Let the mind and heart follow

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel


 Lisa Immordino Vreeland

The book that inspired Immordino Vreeland to direct her first film, a documentary by the same name.

Last year, as I was conducting research for a book I’m writing on Mrs. Vreeland, I realised that her real strengths and subtleties needed to be conveyed in a three-dimensional platform in which she could come alive. Film is the most obvious and effective medium to communicate Mrs. Vreeland’s unique and visual journey. Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel will be more than just an intimate portrait of the legendary fashion icon. It will capture Vreeland’s life visually through a multitude of media. Vreeland’s own voice and persona – strong, eloquent and often very exaggerated – will guide us through her life, adventures, accomplishments and passions.

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel premiered at the Venice Film Festival on 3rd September, 2011.

Now playing: Blueboy - Remember Me

A few years ago there was a one-woman play about Diana Vreeland called Fully Gallop. I'm sorry I missed that.

Mamacita - would you believe it came to London? Brilliant. I can recommend reading the play. One of the authors is Mark Hampton.
