Yellow is Forbidden | Film Festival

This September the Whangārei Art Museum is excited to present our inaugural Art Film Festival

Friday 20 September the Whangārei Art Museum presents Yellow is Forbidden. This feature documentary from director Pietra Brettkelly (A Flickering Truth) follows Chinese fashion designer Guo Pei as she aims to join the exclusive world of Paris’s Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. Brettkelly traces the designer’s Cinderella story from Mao’s China to Paris fashion shows and the Met Gala fundraiser event in New York, beginning with pop star Rihanna modelling a 27kg canary yellow gown in 2015.
