film synopsis

The most striking scenes in Francesco Carrozzini's thoroughly engaging documentary portrait of Franca Sozzani, the legendary editor-in-chief of Italian Vogue, occur not on a glamorous fashion shoot or in the hustle and bustle of the magazine's editorial offices, but in the back seat of a car, traveling to one place or another. It is in these interstitial moments that Sozzani, repeatedly provoked by Carrozzini, cracks, and lets down her guard.

Carrozzini gets to her because he is more than just a documentary filmmaker seeking the truth, but a son, raised by his single mother, wanting to know the secrets of her life, as well as his own.

Best known for making news with controversial fashion spreads-including one after the BP oil spill featuring models on a beach covered in oil-Sozzani has tackled such issues as racism, plastic surgery and domestic violence. Probing beneath the glossy surface, Carrozzini discovers a fiercely independent, boldly original, endlessly creative professional woman determined to make her mark in the world. Featuring testimonials from Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann, Jeff Koons and the French philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy.
