A trailer has been released for the upcoming André Leon Talley documentary.
The Gospel According to André “takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times.”
The Kate Novack film draws “fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, The Gospel According to André is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.”
The film will be released by Magnolia Pictures in theaters on May 25.
It is produced by Kate Novack, Andrew Rossi and Josh Braun and executive produced by Roger Ross Williams
