Jean Paul Gaultier : Freak & Chic

Documentary - Canal+ - 90 min

Jean Paul Gaultier’s latest creation is not a dress but a cabaret show that will be staged in none other than the legendary Folies Bergères music hall in Paris. Yann L’Hénoret’s camera is like a confidante, complicit in every move of the designer and his performers. The film offers poignant personal testimonies in which Jean Paul Gaultier explains the background to the scenes that he brings to life in his spectacular autobiographical revue.

We witness the birth of this work, like the accomplishment of a child’s dream, and the determination and indomitable spirit of the man himself.
