Fashion in Film soundtracked by Wolfmen

Fashion in Film Festival will premiere in London in May 2006 with its very first edition titled “Between Stigma and Enigma”, a retrospective showcase of film and video work on fashion. It is screened at three unique London venues: Ciné lumière (French Institute), the Horse Hospital and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA). Featuring a mix of early and classic cinema, contemporary art, as well as documentary, instruction and propaganda film, it will send viewers on blissfully satisfying and fickle journeys peppered with fine clothes and foxy attitudes. Fashion in Film Festival is delighted to host a special screening of the rarely seen cult film Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? and to welcome its director William Klein as the Festival’s 2006 Guest of Honour. Film screenings will be followed by lectures, informal talks and Q&A sessions with filmmakers, artists, critics and fashion designers including Anna-Nicole Ziesche, Jean-François Carly, Penny Martin and Shelley Fox. Films will also be accompanied by music especially composed for the occasion, including an exclusive collaboration with The WOLFMEN (Marco Pirroni and Chris Constantinou) on soundtracks for two silent films that form part of the Shoes, Eroticism and Fetish programme.

Both films Featuring Wolfmen soundtrack will be screened at Ciné Lumière, London on Wednesday 17 May.
