The Gospel According To André
Kate Novack’s intimate portrait of fashion writer André Leon Talley takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times. Novack’s film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, ‘The Gospel According to André’ is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture. Featuring commentary from fashion luminaries including Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford.
