Inspired even as a boy by the Folies Bergere, the legendary Paris cabaret venue, couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier always wanted to stage a show there. "But what story can I tell?" he muses in this doc about the six months of preparation that went into the show. "Mine." Combining fashion with film, dance, theater, and unapologetic over-the-top-ness, the revue, offers a 40-year career retrospective of the designer. In the show, the fanciful and outrageous meets the naughtily witty and the poignant. It also nods fabulously to the Bergere's own history: A tribute to '20s star Josephine Baker features her iconic banana skirt, this time encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

About the director

From Emmanuel Macron's presidential election to the Olympic gold medalist Teddy Riner, Yann L'Henoret's subjects are manifold. L'Henoret's TV documentary on Macron drew international interest in 2017 for its exclusive access to the then president-elect's rise, and his 2016 film on Riner was shown at Cannes Film Festival.
