Yellow is Forbidden

Documentary 1h 32m 2017

“Like Liberace meets Marie Antoinette on steroids, it is impossible not to be captivated by the magnificent magnitude of Guo Pei’s vision.” ~Sarah Voon, Flicks.co.nz.

AroView: Simply stunning fashion documentary from New Zealand director Pietra Brettkelly that swirls around the beguiling personality of Guo Pei, a dynamic and hugely ambitious Chinese fashion designer whose crowning runway glories in her homeland set the stage for her to break into the exclusive yet savage world of Haute Couture.

Brettkelly’s elegant presentation stands out even among fashion docs and the subject here is richer than most (in more ways than one), extending beyond the usual pursuit-of-excellence tropes into the fascinating realm of Chinese politics, industry and affluence.
