Rick Owens And Other Films By Jan Sharp
In the touching portrait Rick, Michele and Scarlett, filmmaker Jan Sharp offers an inside look at the special relationship of cutting-edge fashion designer Rick Owens and fashion fixture Michele Lamy. Owens's influential mix of goth and glamour begins in Los Angeles, where he prepares for a Paris showing that will make him an international fashion icon. At the same time, his partner Michele works to open Les Deux CafÃ© in the heart of L.A.'s gang territory. Jan Sharp captures their parallel stories with a great deal of intimacy and love.
Two other documentaries complete this volume. Beard: Pecking Order tracks fashion photographer Peter Beard on location in Africa, shooting the legendary Pirelli calendar with the world's top fashion models. In Chasing the President, Jan travels to East Timor, where President JosÃ© Ramos-Horta tries to build peace in the remote border districts of Asia's newest nation.
