Jean-Paul Gaultier: Freak and Chic

Documentary Films | 2019 | 100 minutes

Stranger says: If you love The Fifth Element, there’s probably a soft spot in your heart for Jean-Paul Gaultier. The designer and provocateur, known as the “enfant terrible” of fashion, creates singular garments that blur the lines between sci-fi, club kids, and freak shows. His latest creation, aptly titled Freak and Chic, is a mirror of himself: a hybrid, equal parts theater, runway, and revue. Jean-Paul Gaultier: Freak and Chic is the show’s accompanying documentary, and it’s rumored to be very fun. (CHASE BURNS)

SIFF says: Any designer can stage a runway show, but possibly only Gaultier could pull off a “Fashion Freak Show” at the Folies Bergère. Go behind the scenes of the fashion innovator's most outrageous project yet.
