YELLOW IS FORBIDDEN is a modern day Cinderella story where the brave, diminutive and daring heroine’s dream doesn’t end at the ball – China’s Guo Pei is chasing every designer’s fantasy – to become part of the exclusive yet savage world of Haute Couture.
Set within the new China, YELLOW IS FORBIDDEN is a feature documentary encompassing contemporary global power dynamics and the opposition between art and commerce, looking back at the history of couture all wrapped around the beauty of fashion.
“The amount of eye candy on display throughout the film borders on excessive” (NZ Herald)
★★★★ “You don’t need to be interested in fashion to enjoy this visual feast of a film” (NZ Herald)
