FFFMilano celebrated the opening of its 5th edition with the Italian premiere of the film “McQueen”. Directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui introduced the screening, along with two former mentors of McQueen Michael Nyman and Romeo Gigli.


TITLE: McQueen

DIRECTORS: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui

COUNTRY: United Kingdom

2018 – 111 mins – English


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. But with his fierce romanticism and punk poetry, Alexander McQueen created 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 while working in his atelier. In exclusive interviews with his closest friends and family members, archive material and the salvage beauty of his design, “McQueen” is both an intimate revelation and thrilling portrait of an inspiring yet tortured fashion visionary.
