About Moekunstikino


Fashion shows are one of the most boring parts of the otherwise extremely exciting fashion industry. For me, the process and ideas that take months to reach the final outcome are much more important. This is why I have been fascinated by fashion documentaries for eleven years already.


Tallinn fashion film festival MoeKunstiKino will once again present a selection of films that will open the door to the glamorous and mysterious fashion world and offer a glimpse behind the scenes.


See you in cinema and fashion!

SPECIAL SCREENING: WE MARGIELA
Director Menna Laura Meijer / 100 min / Belgium 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

The film investigates the legacy of Mason Martin Margiela and its relevance for fashion and authorship today. As the history of the house is traced parallel to the creative development and economic success of Maison Martin Margiela, the film explores notions of creativity, authorship, and financial return in our neoliberal times. However, the insights of We Margiela are not quite self-evident. Interviews reveal that many, now iconic, images and ideas of the Maison came into being by coincidence and intuition, not by preconceived concepts. The house was run based on strong gut-feelings and a deep commitment to taking creative risks. As co-founder Meirens states: ‘When you want to please others and everyone, you will get nowhere. I think you have to diversify yourself from others. In the long run, it will give you the freedom not to answer to the system.’

DRIES
Director Reiner Holzemer / 90 min / Germany, Belgium 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

For the first time Fashion Designer Dries Van Noten allows a filmmaker to accompany him in his creative process and rich home life. For an entire year Reiner Holzemer documented the precise steps that Dries takes to conceive of four collections, the rich fabrics, embroidery and prints exclusive to his designs. As well as the emblematic fashion shows that bring his collections to the world and have become cult “must sees’ at the Parisian Fashion week. This film offers an insight into the life, mind and creative heart of a Master Fashion Designer who, for more than 25 years, has remained independent in a landscape of fashion consolidation and globalization.

HOUZE OF Z
Director Sandy Chronopoulos / 87 min / USA 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

House of Z chronicles the meteoric rise of fashion designer Zac Posen at the age of 21, his brand's falling out of favor several years later and his challenge to rebuild his company and his reputation. It is both a portrait of an artist, and a look behind the glamorous curtain of one of the most distinguished brands in the world, revealing the tenuous dance between art and commerce that informs every move.

20:30
MANOLO: THE BOY WHO MADE SHOES FOR LIZARDS
Director Michael Roberts / 89 min / UK 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

This is the story of how a boy growing up on an isolated Spanish island became the world’s most influential shoe designer. The film reveals how Manolo Blahnik’s love for his craft, and each and every one of the shoes he creates, drives his artistry. More than simply a celebration of shoe design, the documentary opens a window on Manolo’s vibrant inner world, serving as a gripping character study on a man whose name is ubiquitous but who remains largely a mystery. The film features Manolo himself, with Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Iman, Rupert Everett, Sofia Coppola, André Leon Talley, Paloma Picasso, Eva Herzogiva and John Galliano amongst others.

EVERYBODY STREET
Director / Cheryl Dunn / 83 min / USA 2013
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

"Everybody Street" illuminates the lives and work of New York's iconic street photographers and the incomparable city that has inspired them for decades. The documentary pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, and captures the visceral rush, singular perseverance and at times immediate danger customary to these artists. Featured Photographers in the film are Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Jill Freedman, Bruce Gilden, Joel Meyerowitz, Rebecca Lepkoff, Mary Ellen Mark, Jeff Mermelstein, Clayton Patterson, Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, Martha Cooper, and Boogie, with historians Max Kozloff and Luc Sante.

19:30
RIVERBLUE
Directors David McIlvride, Roger Williams / 95 min / Canada 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, Riverblue spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. Riverblue brings awareness to the destruction of a some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.

THE DRAWINGS OF YVES SAINT LAURENT
Director Loic Prigent / 52 min / France 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

The Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation is a treasure trove of iconic haute couture creations, and also includes thousands of extraordinary sketches. Instantaneous testimony of both the history of fashion and the career of an outstanding creator, these drawings are the little-known legacy of Yves Saint Laurent and form the raw material of this film, along with contributions from Pierre Bergé and others the designer used to work with. Yves Saint Laurent’s job was to draw. It was his passion. He was never happier then when he was drawing. His sketches make up such a vast body of work it has not yet been fully catalogued. There are perhaps as many as 200,000 of these gems, moments in time, each with its own story. Brought out of the archives, these drawings come to life.

BRITISH STYLE
Director Loic Prigent / 52 min / France 2017
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

What is the British style? London has always been a hotbed of new trends, and is by far the most stylish European capital. It’s no accident that punk, which prompted the biggest stylistic rebellion of the last century, started out in this city. This documentary will be a lively, entertaining and colorful exploration of Britain’s wardrobe and British style. Using some revealing archives that span contemporary modes back to the 1950s, the fashion specialist Loïc Prigent uses his sharp eye and shrewd analysis to decode the changes in British dress codes, from uniforms, the aristocracy, lad culture, eccentrics, Anglicism, the British fashion industry, and the ultimate Englishwoman.

#COUTURE, THE NEW QUEENS OF HAUTE
Director Jean Marc Manivet / 52 min / France 2014
Venue: Cinema Sõprus

What is haute couture today ? This film updates the definition of this luxury craft by examining trends among young designers who have reached, or hope to reach, the precious haute couture label. The documentary highlights 2 young designers: Delphine Manivet and Iris van Herpen, who freely blend tradition and modernity in their creations, thus breaking the codes of haute couture. One of them launched her own brand of wedding dresses in 2005, and is representative of the young designers who have reinvented the genre by playing down the wedding dress with modern designs that are closer to ready-to-wear; while the other has been revisiting haute couture since 2007, with her avant-gardist and conceptual designs, and juggling with innovative materials such as Plexiglas and Rhodoid.
