The 100 years show Documentary

This lady just doesn’t quit. At 100 years old Carmen Herrera is finally getting the recognition she deserves. Herrera, who was born in Havana in 1915, has been creating modern art masterpieces for decades, with little or no recognition, but finally at 95 years young she is  ‘discovered’ and she burst onto the New York art scene. She recently had her own show at the Whitney.

This short documentary is part inspiring story of a determined lady who created art despite receiving little acclaim and part bittersweet, mostly sweet, story of fame come late.

If you are looking for inspiration to keep you on your creative track take a peek at this sublime documentary now on Netflix.
