A behind the scenes look at the preparations for the 2015 art exhibit, China: Through the Looking Glass held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, commonly referred to as the Met Gala, which has become one of the hottest tickets in town.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Rossi joins the mini genre of fashion documentaries with this revealing look at the 2015 Met gala and exhibition on Chinese culture and fashion. When sticking to the subject matter at hand he captures a fair amount of the backstage planning and politics between curator, board of directors and outside political forces. Unfortunately in the end it becomes more of a star f***ing exercise instead. Gorgeous dresses.
I love fashion documentaries, this is not an exception. I loved the process of curating an exhibition and how it involves so many aspects. I would recommend this to art and fashion enthusiast, and to the general public.
