/ SPECIAL SCREENING 2018 / PREMIERE – Anteo Palazzo del Cinema





FFFMilano is proud to celebrate the opening of its fifth’s edition with the premier of  “ Mc Queen”, which follows the life of “Lee” Alexander McQueen and takes a personal look at his extraordinary career and art. Directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui will introduce the screening, along with Michael Nyman and Romeo Gigli, for whom McQueen worked at the start of his career.
Lee Alexander McQueen was born and raised in London’s working-class East End, and there was nothing in his childhood to suggest a future in fashion. The youngest of six children, Lee might have become a plumber, a bricklayer or perhaps a cab driver like his dad. Instead, his fierce romanticism and punk poetry helped create 1990s-era “Cool Britannia”, a celebration of youth culture in the U.K.
The composer Michael Nyman wrote the score for the film as a tribute to McQueen, who loved to listen to Nyman’s orchestrations when working in his atelier. Thanks to exclusive interviews with his closest friends and family members, recovered archives, exquisite visuals and music, “McQueen” is both an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary. Italian theatrical release expected by 2019 thanks to I Wonder Pictures.
