Chris & Don: A Love Story

Directed and edited by the filmmaking team of Tina Mascara and Guido Santi, Chris and Don: A Love Story documents the epic 30-year love story of Don Bachardy and Christopher Isherwood. Bachardy is a prolific portrait artist, and Isherwood, the legendary writer whose book, Berlin Stories, was the genesis of the Chris_DonBroadway play and subsequent film, Cabaret.

Although the age difference between the two men, thirty years, is dramatic, the deep significance of their relationship – that which justifies this expertly-produced film – is nothing more or less than then the bond of love which the they shared.

‘Touching’ and ‘moving’ are words commonly found in the many reviews of this 2007 Zeitgeist release. I find myself so touched and moved by Santi’s and Mascara’s coverage of the individual and bonded lives of these two gentlemen that I have little to say other than I agree with the avalanche of well-deserved praise the film has received, and I whole-heartedly encourage you to experience this relationship.
