About this Event
Whether subtle or extravagant, a film’s costume design conveys its social fabric – the essential storytelling elements of time, place, personality and more. In conjunction with Isabelle De Borchgrave’s exquisite exhibition, WAM and mama.film have curated a series of films that span the decades, to celebrate the art of costume design on screen. These films feature iconic costumes that are unforgettable and often scene stealing. Joining us are local experts and aficionados who will contextualize the costumes as they relate to each story.
Marie Antoinette, Directed by Sofia Coppola, 2006
