Audrey Hepburn won her first Academy Award at the age of 24, and went on to become one of the world’s greatest cultural icons: a once-in-a-generation beauty, and legendary star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, whose style and pioneering collaboration with Hubert de Givenchy continues to inspire. But who was the real Audrey Hepburn?
Helena Coan is a writer, director and musician. She initiated her career in film archiving. Shortly after she was assisting to produce short documentary films for galleries and museums under Chocolate Films. Keepsake was her first short film and won a nomination for screenwriting at the Underwire Film Festival last year. Coan’s career as a singer started as the lead singer of band Dios Mio. Today she is a solo artist with her first new single, Baptise.
I had the opportunity to connect with Helena Coan last month via Zoom to talk about Audrey: More Than An Icon. She shared her excitement to make this documentary and the new material she found about the starlet. Coan also spoke about her experience interviewing Audrey Hepburn’s son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer and granddaughter Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer for this documentary.
