Yellow is Forbidden (2018) Screening and Q&A with Director Pietra Brettkelly

May 29 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Meet Director Pietra Brettkelly and enjoy a special evening screening of her award-winning documentary, Yellow is Forbidden. You’ll gain behind-the-scenes access to the preparations and drama of Guo Pei’s make-or-break Paris runway show, all from the comfort of Bowers’ state-of-the-art Norma Kershaw Auditorium.

“With loving fidelity for Guo’s work, (Director) Brettkelly depicts both the process and the fashion itself, resulting in a timely examination of what it takes for an outsider to earn acclaim from one of the West’s most redoubtable institutions.”—Brian Gordon on Yellow is Forbidden, Tribeca Film Festival, 2018
