Details of a feature-length documentary about the notoriously elusive Martin Margiela first emerged back in May last year and more were released this July, along with the current title: Martin Margiela In His Own Words. Now, though, we finally have info about its release.
The film, directed by Reiner Holzemer – who also directed Dries, the Dries Van Noten documentary – will premiere at the Doc NYC film festival on November 8.
As previously revealed, the release will be overseen by London’s Dogwoof and feature music from the Belgian-based band dEUS.
Given that Margiela has been out of the public eye for so long – besides working on a Paris exhibition in early 2018 – there’s understandable excitement about this insight into his life/work. In fact, the Doc NYC description gives us a bit more of an idea about what to expect, reading: “Margiela digs into his meticulous and idiosyncratic personal archives to reflect on his revolutionary career and legacy.”
