Kate Novack’s intimate portrait of fashion writer André Leon Talley takes viewers on an emotional journey from his youth in the segregated Jim
Crow South to his rise as an influential tastemakers and fashion curator.
Weaving together interviews with key designers and icons of the industry, a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, 'The Gospel According to André' is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.
Novack’s film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue.
Featuring commentary from fashion luminaries including Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford.
