'Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict' Is a Tale of Reinvention

Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict director Lisa Immordino Vreeland talks to Indiewire about her new documentary profiling the famed art collector.

Taking on Guggenheim after her previous film focused on Diana Vreelend, the director explains, "I relate to [Guggenheim and Vreeland] in various ways and I think the biggest way is just that I’m very attracted to their story of transformation. The way that they reinvent themselves. That’s the most interesting parts of their history, that’s the part that I like. And it seems like it’s a very relevant story because so many of these things need to be brought out for a new generation.

"No one is really making these kinds of films anymore," she continues. "I don’t understand why, because there’s a lot of interest in it. But it’s also this pursuit of a dream, of following your own passion and achieving it. And that, ultimately, is the story that I really like. It’s sort of old-fashioned, that whole thing, but it’s nice to hang onto."
