In a historical moment in which the world is facing a global change, Anthea Sylbert’s story shows how “Change” is a fundamental part of human life: it is the key to making dreams come true.
Anthea Giannakouros Sylbert is a piece of Hollywood history: born in Brooklyn in 1937 to Greek parents, she is one of the main characters of the New Hollywood Era.
Sylbert has been a legendary costume designer: she created iconic costumes for Rosemary’s Baby, Shampoo and King Kong and was nominated for two Academy Awards for her work at Chinatown and Julia.
At the peak of her career as costume designer, the first change: she left costumes behind her and became Vice President of Production at Warner Bros first and at United Artists then.
But, as she never wanted to bend to compromises with the male dominated Hollywood, at the top of her game as Executive, she left everything to set her production company with her best friend Goldie Hawn.
Driven by the desire to find herself in the country where her beloved father was born, she decided to change her life dramatically once again: she waved Hollywood goodbye and with her husband, the actor Richard Romanus, set up home in the Greek island of Skiathos.
Where she decided to spend the third act of her life, realizing any leftover dreams.
The feature documentary dedicated to ”Anthea Sylbert & the New Hollywood era” is currently at the development stage. The Dark Candy Production has already secured access to all the subjects involved and are now looking for funding.
