As the editor of Italian Vogue from 1988 until her death last December, the legendary Sozzani redefined what a fashion magazine could be, breaking taboos and unabashedly mixing couture and controversy in fashion-photo shoots themed to such topics as war, plastic surgery, domestic violence, and oil spills. Luminaries including Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann, Marina Abramović, publisher Jonathan Newhouse ("She went too far!"), and philosopher Bernard Henri-Levi ("She's crazy!") weigh in, but the heart of the film is the candid, at times contentious back-and-forth between the strong-willed Sozzani and the son eager to learn more about the mother who wasn’t apologetic about putting profession ahead of parenthood. In Italian, English, and French with English subtitles. Courtesy of BOND/360. DCP digital. (MR) (more…)
