21st Century Cinema
Directed by Reiner Holzemer • 2017 • Belgium
Starring Dries Van Noten, Iris Apfel, Pamela Golbin
For the first time, legendary fashion designer Dries Van Noten allows a filmmaker access to his creative process and rich home life. For an entire year, Reiner Holzemer documents the intricate steps that Dries takes to conceive of four collections, capturing the work that goes into producing the distinctive fabrics, embroidery, and prints exclusive to his designs as well as the celebrated fashion shows that bring his collections to the world and which have become cult “must-sees” at Paris Fashion Week. With exquisite attention to detail, DRIES offers intimate insight into the life, mind, and creative heart of a master designer who, for more than twenty-five years, has remained stubbornly independent in a landscape of brand consolidation and globalization.
