The autumn and winter season encourages people to spend their evenings in front of the TV and computer screen. However, it is worth spending this time pleasantly, but at the same time learning something new. Therefore, in this selection, we will present film productions related to three fields of the newest art: design, fashion and street art, and graffiti.
"Abstract: The Art of Design'' is a documentary series about the most innovative designers in various fields including set design, photography, architecture, interior design or such niche areas as a toy and car design. It is worth getting to know the creators of Instagram or the set designer for Beyoncé, Kanye West and Adele concerts, among others. The production already has two seasons and can be watched on the Netflix streaming platform.
Jean Paul Gaultier is a French fashion designer, film costume designer and musician. In the production, the viewer has the opportunity to see the "enfant terrible" of the Parisian fashion world up close. The artist talks about his life, including his friendship with Pierre Cardin (French fashion designer of Italian origin) and Jean Patou (French fashion designer, perfume creator). Anyone interested in fashion can catch a glimpse of the eccentric creator as he prepares for a revue to mark the fortieth anniversary of his career. The whole thing takes place at the Folies Bergère, the legendary Parisian concert stage.
Banksy is an English street artist, political activist and film director whose real name and identity remain unconfirmed and subject to speculation. The film "Exit Through the Gift Shop" is Banksy's directorial debut about a shopkeeper who wanted to find him and befriend him. The picture is set in Los Angeles, with the main character being the owner of a second-hand clothing boutique. It is worth watching to be drawn into the filmmaker's mystery game. The film was nominated for the Oscars in 2010 in the best documentary feature category.
