The September Issue

The September Issue (a documentary film following Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour) premiered last Friday January 16th at the Sundance Film Festival; it is directed by R.J. Cutler. For those unfamiliar with Anna Wintour, the character Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) was thought to be based on Wintour. The film features Anna and her team from January to August 2007 and highlights the creation of the September 2007 Vogue issue - the largest magazine ever published to date. The film features Karl Lagerfeld, Thakoon Panichgul and Andre Leon Talley (A.L.T.) to name a few. The four-person crew shot over 300 hours of film in order to accurately capture contradictions innate to the fashion world. “It’s a remarkable world, filled with great complexity,” Mr. Cutler says. “It’s glamorous and it’s workaday. It’s exhilarating and exhausting. You have to toil and work hard to accomplish what they accomplish but you’re living on top of the world”, as quoted from the Wall Street Journal
