Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story

Dir: Tiffany Bartok, USA, 2017, 97 mins

| NewFest at The Center Presents |
Screening, Talkback and Reception

Legendary makeup artist, Kevyn Aucoin, arrived in New York City from the small town of Lafayette, Louisiana after spending his childhood expressing himself through drawing, painting, and makeup. In search of relief from confusion surrounding his identity and constant bullying, Kevyn found acceptance in the fashion world that was instant and explosive. Due to his groundbreaking contouring techniques, his infectious personality and mission to make everyone feel beautiful, he shot to fame quickly doing makeup for every supermodel and celebrity throughout the 80’s and 90’s. At the height of his fame, Kevyn died mysteriously in 2002.

LARGER THAN LIFE: THE KEVYN AUCOIN STORY explores every corner of Kevyn’s rich, beautiful and complicated life through the story of his untimely passing and the inspiring legacy he left behind. Featuring Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Isabella Rossellini, and Tori Amos.
