Film Independent at LACMA: The Gospel According to Andre
Includes a conversation with director Kate Novack and André Leon Talley
Both figuratively and literally, no one looms larger in the parallel and ever-intersecting worlds of fashion and style than André Leon Talley. This deeply thoughtful tastemaker rose from humble beginnings to become a journalist and Anna Wintour’s number two at Vogue magazine, where he brought a purview that was both earthy and fabulous – a sensibility that still remains. As a man of color, Talley’s persistence in making diversity an undeniable aspect of fashion is just one element that makes him such a remarkable and compelling figure. It took documentary filmmaker Kate Novack (Page One: Inside the New York Times) to persuade Talley to sit before the camera and tell his singular story, taking him from the center of cool he currently inhabits to his hardscrabble roots in North Carolina. After her remarkable film about an equally remarkable life, Novack and her subject Talley will be on hand for a conversation.
