In a quiet Quebec town, the local high school houses hundreds of impressionable young minds, each bursting with ideas, passions, frustrations and aggression. With his third feature-length documentary, Jean-François Caissy explores this adolescent arena to craft a subtle but provocative meditation on teenage existence and the rules by which youths govern their lives. Comprised largely of private encounters between students and teachers or guidance councillors, and intercut with footage of the children during their leisure time, Caissy's intimate approach places his young subjects at the very centre of the screen, his camera resolutely fixed on the students as they discuss and attempt to justify their occasionally arbitrary actions. Like Fred Wiseman's hugely influential High School, Caissy's observational style gives his characters room to breathe, resulting in a quietly compelling and often hypnotic account of how burgeoning identities are formed and the prudent role of the educator during these formative years.

IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression.
