Franca: Chaos and Creation
Aggiornamento: 23 apr 2020
Told by Francesco Carrozzini, Franca Sozzani’s son, the documentary paints an intimate portrait of her three decades as editor-in-chief of Italian Vogue, as she broke grounds by touching on taboos on the covers, creating striking covers from the 80s to her unfortunate death in 2016.
“Why can’t I talk about it? Why can’t a fashion magazine talk about what’s happening in the world?” Sozzani says- this wowing documentary fixates on the wild and imaginative photographs this woman curated, that brought harsh reality into the public eye from women being abused, to women in several stages of plastic surgery. This feature highlights the private life of the iconic Franca and her chaotic manifestos throughout her history for a truly moving experience.
