BPR Spends Eleven Minutes With Jay McCarroll

I was delighted to be able to travel to Philadelphia for the World Premiere of Jay McCarroll's documentary "Eleven Minutes."

The Scarlett lives in Philly and she and her charming husband graciously hosted my visit.

The film was scheduled to start at 9:30 so we had some dinner first and headed to the theater. When we arrived there was a long line of people in front of the venue waiting to get in. YAY!

The doors opened and the theater filled up. I checked my phone to discover that I had missed a call... It was Anthony Cady! Our Fashion Professor. He and his wife had driven down from New York for the premiere. It was great to finally meet him in person. Anthony made all of the leather-free shoes for Jay's collection and he is featured in the film. His daughter also has a charming "cameo."

The show was about to begin, but first we were all welcomed by the organizers of the Festival. The filmmakers, Rob Tate and Michael Selditch were introduced along with Jay. I took a photo (above) so that you could see what it was like. Michael is wearing one of Jay's designs which was featured in the Fashion Show and in the film.
