CNN Films Presents airs Friday, April 29 at 9:00pm Eastern
CNN will broadcast HBO’s memoir-like documentary, NOTHING LEFT UNSAID: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper, directed by Liz Garbus, on Friday, April 29 at 9:00pm Eastern. The CNN Films Presents broadcast will air with limited commercial interruption.
Told through intimate conversations shared between mother and son, the film captures the legendary life of Gloria Vanderbilt – her grandfather’s historic industrial achievements, her father’s unexpected death, the famed custody trial between Gloria Vanderbilt’s mother and aunt, and her careers as actress, artist, and designer.
They also discuss Wyatt Cooper’s premature death, when Anderson Cooper was just 10 years old, and the suicide of Cooper’s older brother, Carter, a devastating circumstance that left them with painful, unanswered questions coupled with their grief. In the film, Cooper partially attributes his ability to report from war zones and witness grand-scale human tragedies like famine or the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to having lost people closest to him in his life.
Vanderbilt, now 92, continues to paint and create daily. She and her son, Anderson Cooper, the award-winning CNN journalist, discuss her turbulent childhood, romances, marriages and children, and career highlights while examining the personal letters, art collections, news clippings and film, home movies, and family photographs that have chronicled much of Vanderbilt’s storied life.
