Chris & Don tells the true story of the three-decade relationship between British writer Christopher Isherwood and American painter Don Bachardy, thirty years his junior.
The film traces their shared and separate lives from Isherwood’s time in Weimar-era Germany (the inspiration for his Berlin Stories, itself the basis for Cabaret) to their first encounter in Malibu in the 1950s to Bachardy’s artistic triumph away from the shadow of his famous life partner. The film is filled with contemporary reminiscences by Bachardy and compelling archival footage featuring the likes of W. H. Auden, Igor Stravinsky, Tennessee Williams, and David Hockney. (90 mins., video)
