On 20 January 1993, British actress and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn passed away of colon cancer in her home La Paisible in Switzerland.
And Thirty years later, we are still thinking of her, talking about her, imitating her and idoling her. No one is like her.
Barely two years ago, another documentary about Audrey Hepburn titled Audrey(2020) was made, with the help of Audrey Hepburn’s elder son Sean Hepburn Ferrer and her granddaughter Emma Ferrer, showing us a more intimate look into the eternal icon’s life.
Over the decades, Audrey has been interviewed, written and filmed so many times there is hardly anything new the documentary can bring us, only affirming what we have already known: she is one of those very very rare human beings that have been truly blessed by God, one of his creatures that he has created with all his mighty efforts: he gave her beauty, grace, elegance, magnificence, intelligence, and a big heart, so big that she can give so much and give to so many, to her loved ones and to all the children in the world.
And to us, she gives us inspiration and nourishment: We are inspired daily that we can at least aspire to look like her, and are nourished always knowing that someone like Audrey Hepburn did exist, once, and forever.
