Featured Film – Yellow is Forbidden

Directed by Pietra Brettkelly | PTFF W&F 2019 | China | 97 min

This is a modern-day Cinderella story where the brave, diminutive and daring heroine’s dream doesn’t end at the ball – China’s remarkable designer Guo Pei is chasing every designer’s fantasy – to become part of the exclusive yet savage world of Haute Couture. Set within the new China, YELLOW IS FORBIDDEN is a feature documentary encompassing contemporary global power dynamics and the opposition between art and commerce, looking back at the history of couture all wrapped around the beauty of fashion.
