Director’s Statement

12 10 2008

I had seen Vincent around for years. There was a time when I viewed him with some trepidation, not knowing quite what to make of the guy in the funny suits. After he began performing his fashion shows, spinning for the tour boats, my trepidation gave way to curiosity and anticipation. I found myself looking for Vincent and wondering what the next suit would be. Then one day, as I stood at the window watching his 1:00 show on State Street Bridge, I was struck by the look of sheer joy I saw on his face. I thought to myself, whatever else you have to say about this guy, he has figured out what makes him happy and he does it, regardless of what anyone else thinks. The rest of us should be so lucky. But how had he come to this point in his life? Vincent had become a beloved fixture in downtown Chicago, delighting and confusing tourists and locals alike, but no one really knew anything about him. I decided it was time to shed some light on the mysterious Vincent P. Falk.
