Cleveland International Film Festival Plexus Partner Film Screening: Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story (1st showing)
We're happy to once again partner with the Cleveland International Film Festival by sponsoring a documentary film titled "Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story."
Code "PLEXUS" will save $2 on tickets for this and any other film during the festival.
Synopsis: Raised in Lafayette, Louisiana, Kevyn Aucoin was decidedly considered an unusual child. His room was filled with pictures of Streisand and his schooldays with beatings and torment. But Kevyn proved as resilient as he was rebellious. At 21, he went to New York City and simply walked into the offices of Vogue like he belonged there. Which he did. It was a time when the idea of a make-up artist in fashion was unknown. It was also a time of terror with the advent of AIDS. Kevyn’s astounding eye for color and fearlessly innovative spirit soon conquered the fashion world. LARGER THAN LIFE is as fascinating and flamboyant as its subject. It is an intimate scrapbook of Kevyn’s life, work, and very famous clients, including Cher, Tina Turner, and Whitney Houston. It is also the story of his lifelong struggle with Acromegaly (a growth hormone disorder) and the inner demons that conspired to cut his life short. Kevyn considered everyone beautiful. You will agree with him.
