Audrey Hepburn: In Her Own Words

Many years ago, I visited the offices of The Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund and saw a beautiful video about Audrey's work with UNICEF. It was introduced by Gregory Peck and I remember he read one of Audrey's favourite poems by Rabindranath Tagore. It's been a long time and I haven't ever been able to find a copy of the video, but luckily a film company found me.

Long Tail has the video, called "Audrey Hepburn: In Her Own Words" on DVD for the first time, and I'm so happy. The DVD is very affordable at $19.95 and also comes with a special episode of Views on World Poverty. I shall be getting a copy of this soon and will post a full review for you once I've seen it again, but trust me when I say that what little I remember was very, very good. I told people at the time that everyone should see this video, and now you finally have that chance. Here's a trailer for you to watch:

And you can find more information through Long Tail's website here.

I love Audrey's passion over her work for UNICEF, but I love even more that this video is finally available to the public for anyone and everyone to see. This side of her needs to be shown more so we don't forget that she was a humanitarian, and a good one at that.

Very special thanks to David, for everything he's done.
