New York, March 4, 2014 – The Tribeca Film Festival just released the 12 films that make up the World Documentary Competition and amongst them is Frederic Tcheng’s masterful new documentary – Dior et Moi (Dior and I). One enters the storied world that is the House of Christian Dior with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first Dior Haute Couture collection as Artistic Director, a true labor of love by a dedicated, charming, and often humorous group of collaborators. Beautifully melding the everyday, pressure-filled components of fashion with a mysterious and elegant reverence for the history of this iconic brand, Tcheng’s colorful homage to the seamstresses of the atelier is nothing short of magical.
In English and French with subtitles, the film will open the competition on April 17th. This will be the film’s world premier.
