Filmmakers Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui capture the life and work of a unique creative talent in all his glorious anarchy in their new film, McQueen. Intimate one-on-one interviews with family, friends and colleagues, footage from his famed live runway shows and previously lost video of McQueen himself reveal an unmatched creative talent who expressed his darkest fantasies and greatest ambitions through his revolutionary clothing design and spectacular showings. Myths and stories from Yoruba folktales, Dante’s Inferno and the legend of Atlantis, as well as personal obsessions, ancestral history, dreams and nightmares, fears and desires all inform his singular artistic vision. Filtered through the crucible of his febrile imagination, an eclectic and visceral mix of movies, art, music, history, dance and technology provoke both scandal and ecstasy. Enthralled or repulsed, no one could look away — nor would they ever forget what they had witnessed.
