NEW YORK (AP) — Documentary maker Albert Maysles has died. He was 88.
Stacey Farrar, the marketing director of Maysles Films, his production company, said the filmmaker died at his home in New York on Thursday.
Maysles and his brother David made several classic works of cinema verite in the 1960s and '70s, including the Rolling Stones documentary "Gimme Shelter" and "Salesman," about a traveling Bible salesman. Their film "Grey Gardens" showed the lives of a mother and her daughter, relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, living in a falling-apart East Hampton mansion.
After his brother died, in 1987, Albert Maysles continued to work with various collaborators. His documentary of the fashion icon Iris Apfel, "Iris," is to be released in April.
