Alexander McQueen. A name which summons thoughts of breathtaking fashion works, punk rock attitudes, provocative genius and heartbreaking tragedy. Now the legendary designers full story will come to light in McQueen.
Check out the new trailer below:
Alexander McQueen’s rags-to-riches story is a modern-day fairy tale, laced with the gothic. Mirroring the savage beauty, boldness and vivacity of his design, this documentary is an intimate revelation of McQueen’s own world, both tortured and inspired, which celebrates a radical and mesmerizing genius of profound influence.
Directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui paint a powerful portrait of the famed designer and attempt to divulge who he really was behind the canvas of his works in what is a very intimate piece of filmmaking.
Fashion is also on the menu here as well as McQueen offers audience a behind-the-scenes look into the designers creative process and has based its structure around five of his most well-known and flamboyant shows.
As one of this year’s highlights of 2018’s New Zealand International Film Festival, McQueen is a piece of cinema that audiences should devour as it offers an experience of radiant energy and passion of an artist at work.
Tickets for McQueen are available here and it will be released in cinemas later this year.
