Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams

1h 50m Biography, Documentary, Fashion 2021
NZIFF2023

Salvatore Ferragamo began his career as a shoemaker before he was barely a teenager. In America, his work would soon help invent the glamour of Hollywood’s silent era as he created shoes for iconic films and for stars like Gloria Swanson, Mary Pickford, and Douglas Fairbanks. 

Directed by Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name) and with incisive commentary by Martin Scorsese, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin and Wanda Ferragamo, this is a portrait of a man whose vision, passion, and craftsmanship made him “shoemaker to the stars,” and an enduring cultural, fashion, and artistic influence.

“Ferragamo’s story is a complex intersection, touching on early-20th-century immigration, youthful ambition, the dawn of Hollywood, passionate artistic hunger, tenacity, foot fascination and wild innovation.” ~Dave White, TheWrap

“Guadagnino’s documentary is very much like walking through an immersive and interactive museum designed to make one feel nostalgic for a bygone era of art and craft. It’s magical stuff.” ~Tomris Laffly, The A.V. Club
