Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Talking Points -

Pro­duced by James Franco and di­rected by Christina Voros, The Di­rec­tor fol­lows the re­mark­able story of Gucci un­der Frida Gian­nini’s lead. Its three acts al­to­gether span a pe­riod of 18 months be­hind the walls of the famed Floren­tine house, where the creative di­rec­tor strives to up­hold a legacy of el­e­gance and pure in­spi­ra­tion. Says Gian­nini of the film, which re­cently pre­miered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val, “I think that the glam­our of the fash­ion in­dus­try con­ceals the work that goes into the process it­self. And for a 90-year-old fash­ion house like Gucci there is so much that goes into the “mak­ing of” of our prod­ucts and col­lec­tions that deserves to be bet­ter un­der­stood, so I thought it would be in­ter­est­ing to have an out­sider’s view on that com­plete story.” www.gucci.com
