All Cast & Crew >>

In 1975, the Maysles brothers, armed with a film camera and a tape recorder recorded the fascinating mother-daughter relationship between Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the eccentric aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. In 2001, the then-19 year old director, Greenfield-Sanders, saw Grey Gardens and began this project. Ghosts of Grey Gardens is both a documentary on a documentary and one fan's three-year quest to glean additional information about the Maysles' subjects and capture the reason for their enormous impact on so many creative people.
