PUBLISHER'S CORNER AN HOMAGE TO TÍO CHALO AND HIS LOVE OF CINEMA I grew up loving cinema thanks to the influence of my uncle Gonzalo Raventós, a.k.a. tío Chalo, who ran the Cine Rex cinema in downtown San José, Costa Rica. I saw many films in what I remember as a huge movie theater with two floors and a gigantic screen. I have wonderful memories of my childhood going to Cine Rex and enjoying candy, popcorn and sodas out of a vending machine that dispensed Coca Colas in little glass bottles. These are some of the great memories of my childhood that shaped me for the rest of my life… Tío Chalo knows the business of classic Hollywood cinema very well, and he taught me a lot about it growing up. When my dad was very sick in the hospital, my little brother and I lived with tío Chalo and tía Cavita – my aunt, godmother and my dad's only sister – for a few months. That was a sad time because my dad was very ill and passed away when I was 12 years old, but it was also a time I remember fondly because I watched many a classic film with tío Chalo and my cousins, and intently heard his stories about some of the most famous Hollywood movie stars. I learned about Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Laurence Olivier, Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Esther Williams, Shirley Temple, and countless other greats of the silver screen thanks to tío Chalo. In the 1930s, tío Chalo grew up on the second floor of the famous Teatro Raventós in downtown San José, owned by his dad. As a little boy, he was madly in love with movie star Shirley Temple, as he explained during a 2014 interview in La Nación, Costa Rica's leading newspaper. Those were the days of his early childhood and the grand cinema halls, when Shirley Temple films on the silver screen would fill up all 2,200 seats of the huge Teatro Raventós movie theater. Tío Chalo´s love of cinema became his life and career for many years and his influence led to my own love of films and cinema. Thanks to tío Chalo, when I purchased Wire Magazine I decided to become an ardent supporter and sponsor of the Miami Film Festival and the OUTshine Film Festival, and to publish an annual Sundance Film Festival special issue. Movies today are, in many cases, very different from the Hollywood films of yesteryear, but the Sundance Film Festival continues to recognize the importance of filmmaking and the work of independent, bold filmmakers whose storytelling can actually change the way many of us view our world. I hope you enjoy our preview of this year's Sundance Film Festival and our spotlight films, as much as I enjoyed watching Hollywood classics with tío Chalo and hearing his stories about famous movie stars and their films. Cheers,

Wrongful Death and Other Circus Acts January 18 - February 4 Adrienne Arsht Center 1300 Biscayne Blvd. Miami arshtcenter.org Deemed by The Miami Herald as "a playwright who crafts smart, insightful dialogue and memorable characters in service of compelling, engagingly theatrical stories," Wrongful Death and Other Circus Acts heads to the Zoetic Stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center.

DESTINATIONS

OAHU By Michael W. Sasser

THE GREAT GATHERING SPACE

here's little wonder that Oahu has been known as "The Gathering Place" for longer than even locals remember. The third largest, but today most populated, Hawaiian island is a crossroads for the immense Pacific, a multicultural breeding ground, a way station for everyone from early Asian/Pacific Islanders to Capt. James Cook on his third Pacific expedition, to the U.S. forces housed there in World War II when Pearl Harbor became the focal point of the global conflict.

Oahu is primarily defined by the state capital of Honolulu, Pearl Harbor, and the famous beach known as Waikiki. Understand that most attractions and accommodations are packed into these fairly small areas, which means they are prone to crowds, and some sing the praises of more remote parts of Hawaii. But there is a reason that 60-plus percent of visitors end up here: pretty much everything Hawaii has to offer is right here, in easy reach.

"ALOHA IS THE UNCONDITIONAL DESIRE TO PROMOTE THE TRUE GOOD OF OTHER PEOPLE IN A FRIENDLY SPIRIT OUT OF A SENSE OF KINSHIP." - ABRAHAM AKAKA

And, oh yes, it also has a reputation for being one of the most scenic places on the planet, which can't help but accentuate its status as "The Gathering Place." When you consider the ideal climate, multitude of diverse attractions and gay friendly culture, the gorgeous reality of Oahu comes even further into focus.

So, what's to offer? It really starts for most with Waikiki, which is home to some of the most photographed beaches in the world. You would have a hard time not wandering upon a famous beach, with the most famous gay beach being Queen's Surf Beach in the heart of Waikiki. There are also plenty of "mixed" beaches, but enjoying the waterfront isn't exclusive to beach-bumming. Within easy reach is the vaunted surfing on the North Shore. Also in the vicinity are other ubiquitous Oahu standards such as twilight catamaran trips (some specifically gay), a famed luau and every water sport (ahem) imaginable. Gay specific amenities abound, despite the comfortable mixed nature of most on the island. From Hula's Bar and Lei Stand (yes, yes) at Waikiki Grand Hotel to Bar 35 on the nightlife front to Brasserie Du Vin, the island's most romantic restaurant, to gay-friendly accommodations at Hotel Renew (they have a nice LGBTQ honeymoon package), the gorgeous Coconut Waikiki Hotel and others, gay and straight go hand in hand here.

In the vicinity of Waikiki and Honolulu, there are more than a half-dozen gay bars and clubs, but it is important to note that the press of flesh in the vicinity is so intense that nudity and cruising are discouraged. When so many people of all stripes are stripped down, it's important to retain a little self-control. Oahu's appeal extends into every area. Here is the nexus of Hawaiian arts and culture to eclectic shopping to history. The Aloha Tower sits at Pier 9 of Honolulu Harbor, where it continues to welcome mariners to America's most beautiful state. The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, designated the Hawaii State Museum of Natural and Cultural History, is a museum of history and science located in Honolulu. Founded in Photo by Mark Kushimi. Provided by Hawaii Tourism Authority

1889, it is the largest museum in Hawaii and has the world's largest collection of Polynesian cultural artifacts and natural history specimens. Of course, no historic site in this or any other state can really compare to Pearl Harbor. Long a significant U.S. military site, the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan on December 7, 1941, was the immediate cause of the United States' entry into World War II. Today it is a chilling, awe-inspiring site attracting throngs of visitors, at once deeply touching and optimistic at the same time – with Japan being one of the United States' strongest and most beloved allied nations. What more could one ask from a single destination than an incomparable environment, history, arts and culture – and a distinct culture welcoming people of all orientation. That's quite a gathering space, indeed. Michael W. Sasser has been a travel writer for more than 20 years, for publishers ranging from Time Out and Frommer's to Miami Herald Custom Publishing and ABARTA Media.

THE 2018 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL:

BOLD, INDEPENDENT STORYTELLING By Rafa Carvajal

he 2018 Sundance Film Festival is right around the corner. If you love independent films, you may want to attend this year's festival or watch some of the Festival's films when they become available. The Sundance Institute will showcase bold, independent storytelling at this year's Film Festival, and screenings will be held in Park City, Salt Lake City and at Sundance Mountain Resort January 18-28.

PHOTO BY JILL ORESCHEL. PROVIDED BY SUNDANCE INSTITUTE

This year, the Festival will screen 110 independent films from 29 countries and include 47 first-time filmmakers. The films for 2018 were selected from 13,468 submissions – 3,901 feature-length films and 8,740 short films. Of the feature films submitted, 1,799 were from the U.S. and 2,102 were international. Also, 100 feature films at the 2018 Festival will be world premieres. In this week's cover story we spotlight a selection of 15 films to give you a preview of some of the cinematic works that will be screening at Sundance. The Sundance Film Festival is the crown jewel of the Sundance Institute's diverse public programs, which also include festivals in London, Hong Kong and other film screenings throughout the year. The Institute supports independent filmmakers and artists with year-round programs, grants over $2.5 million in funding and convenes 25 global residency labs that focus on theatre, film, New Frontier and episodic content. Robert Redford, president and founder of the Sundance Institute, highlights the importance of supporting the work of independent filmmakers, by explaining that "The work of independent storytellers can challenge and possibly change culture, illuminating our world's imperfections and possibilities. This year's Festival is full of artfully-told stories that provoke thought, drive empathy and allow the audience to connect, in deeply personal ways, to the universal human experience." We highlighted some of these stories in the films and documentaries we spotlighted for you.

14 WIREMAG.COM #02 2018

The Sundance Film Festival is also well-known for its focus on diversity in their screening selections. Keri Putnam, executive director of Sundance Institute, points out that "We're proud of the diversity of this year's lineup; emboldening broader, more inclusive independent voices is a crucial part of our work at the Festival and throughout the year. These stories might inspire or move us, even occasionally make us uncomfortable – but they can shift our perspectives, spark conversation and create change." I have no doubt that some of these year's films will certainly provide viewers with a different perspective on a range of topics, and may also change the way many of us view our world. Enjoy the spotlight films!

SPOTLIGHT FILMS A Kid Like Jake 2018, U.S. Director: Silas Howard Starring: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer, Priyanka Chopra, Ann Dowd, Amy Landecker Sundance Summary Loving parents Alex (Claire Danes) and Greg (Jim Parsons) are faced with the daunting task of applying to prestigious kindergartens in NYC for their 4-year-old, Jake. Competing in this cutthroat environment means focusing on what is most unique about a child, forcing Alex and Greg to consider Jake's love of dresses, fairy tales, and princesses. These qualities never seemed unusual before, but when Jake begins to act out in preschool, Alex and Greg – suddenly at odds – must find a way to support Jake's identity without losing each other in the process. Exciting filmmaker Silas Howard returns to the Sundance Film Festival – after years of directing boundary-pushing TV series like Transparent and This Is Us – with a sharply observed feature expanding the vital conversation around gender identity today. Pitch-perfect performances from Danes and Parsons balance the relentless competitive drive of New Yorkers with the brutal honesty needed to keep a family together. Stellar supporting actors Amy Landecker, Ann Dowd, Priyanka Chopra, and Octavia Spencer bring humor and energy to the film, along with unexpected revelations about the characters and the world they inhabit. American Animals 2017, U.S. Director: Bart Layton Starring: Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, Jared Abrahamson, Ann Dowd, Udo Kier Sundance Summary Lexington, Kentucky, 2004: Spencer and Warren dream of remarkable lives beyond their middle-class suburban existence. They head off to colleges in the same town, haunted by the fear they may never be special in any way. Spencer is given a tour of his school's incredibly valuable rare book collection and describes it all to Warren. Suddenly, it hits them – they could pull off one of the most audacious art thefts in recent history, from the university's special collections library. Convinced they can get away with it, they recruit two other friends. Suddenly, the dance of knowing what happens if they cross the line becomes all-consuming. Buoyed by an exceptional cast, BAFTA Award–winning documentary director Bart Layton (The Imposter, 2012 Sundance Film Festival) makes a brilliant leap into the world of fiction, cleverly utilizing elements of nonfiction to propel the narrative. A true story, American Animals is both a thrilling heist film and an existential journey of four misguided young men searching in all the wrong places for identity, meaning, adventure, and the kind of life that movies are made about. Beirut 2017, U.S. Director: Brad Anderson Starring: Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris, Larry Pine, Shea Whigham Sundance Summary Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), a top U.S. diplomat, left Lebanon in the 1970s after a tragic incident. Ten years later, the CIA calls him back to a war-torn Beirut with a mission only he can accomplish. Meanwhile, a CIA field agent who is working undercover at the American embassy is tasked with keeping Skiles alive and ensuring that the mission is a success. Without knowing who is on his side and with lives on the line, Skiles must outmaneuver everyone to expose the truth. From acclaimed screenwriter Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton, the Bourne series), Beirut is an intelligent and gripping political thriller exploring the question "whom can you trust in a time of war?" Director Brad Anderson (The Machinist), returning with his sixth feature at the Sundance Film Festival, tells a taut, strikingly entertaining story and gets thrilling performances from Hamm and Rosamund Pike. Though the plot has many layers, Anderson deftly weaves everything together with a controlled style that makes Beirut a riveting film packed with intrigue and suspense. #02 2018 WIREMAG.COM 15


Burden 2017, U.S. Director: Andrew Heckler Starring: Garrett Hedlund, Forest Whitaker, Andrea Riseborough, Tom Wilkinson, Usher Raymond Sundance Summary Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund) is a taciturn repo man rising through the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan in small-town South Carolina, 1996. Orphaned as a child, he is fiercely loyal to local Klan leader and toxic father figure Tom Griffin (a terrifying Tom Wilkinson). But Burden has a change of heart when he falls for Judy (Andrea Riseborough), a single mother who stirs his social conscience. His violent break from the Klan sends him into the open arms of Reverend Kennedy (Forest Whitaker), an idealistic African American preacher, who offers him safety and a shot at redemption. Based on a true story, writer/director Andrew Heckler's debut drama is an unflinching examination of the neo-Confederate heritage of hatred and a moving character study about the hard work of undoing racism. Through Hedlund's nuanced performance and Heckler's sensitive exploration of class, race, and family – both genetic and adopted – this cautiously optimistic vision of social progress is at once a reflection on the stubborn roots of American racism and an urgent window into contemporary conflicts in the age of the alt-right.

Colette 2017, U.K. Director: Wash Westmoreland Starring: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Eleanor Tomlinson, Aiysha Hart

Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind 2018, U.S. Director: Marina Zenovich Starring: Nick Higgins, Jenna Rosher, Thorsten Thielow, Wolfgang Held

Sundance Summary Colette is arguably one of France's most important and groundbreaking twentieth-century writers, and her dozens of volumes of provocative fiction, memoirs, journalism, and drama jubilantly bucked the societal constraints that were placed on women. Writer/director Wash Westmoreland's mesmerizing film tells the story of this iridescent artist's creative awakening in turn-of-the-century Paris – a place as dynamic and modern as she was.

Sundance Summary When David Letterman saw a young Robin Williams perform stand-up, Letterman quipped, "It was like he could fly." Williams's boundless energy, lightning wit, and knack for comedic characters sparked a career on stage and screen unlike any other, making him one of the most beloved stars in modern entertainment. Marina Zenovich carefully collects a trove of intimate archival material and new interviews with Williams's confidants (including Pam Dawber and Billy Crystal) to summon an intricate portrait of a man who needed an audience just as much as audiences needed someone like him.

Colette (played with sumptuous feistiness by Keira Knightley) arrives from the countryside as a young bride to Willy – an older, notorious literary entrepreneur – and she is immediately swept into flamboyant, libertine society. At Willy's prompt, she takes pen to paper and invents the loosely autobiographical Claudine novels, which take Paris by storm. The character Claudine becomes a veritable pop-culture icon, but Colette does not, since Willy takes authorial credit. To reclaim her literary voice, Colette must set out for new transgressive adventures, sans Willy. To bring Colette's environment alive, Westmoreland creates stunning, luminous tableaus evoking contemporaneous painters who depicted a lush, fin-de-siecle vision of locomotives, urban streets, and verdant gardens – an electric world on the brink of change, just like Colette. 16 WIREMAG.COM #02 2018

Hilarious outtakes from Mork & Mindy and Williams's films illustrate his legendary spontaneity and seemingly effortless humor, but also that his line between stage and life looked, at times, to be perilously thin. Outlandish and unpredictable, Williams gave his all to famously energetic performances that seemed to defy physics. The source of Williams's comedy was everyday life, and this documentary highlights both his ability to touch so many people and how he earned his place as one of the funniest actors of his generation.


Seeing Allred 2018, U.S. Directors: Sophie Sartain, Roberta Grossman Sundance Summary To some, Gloria Allred is a money-grubbing, shrill feminist prone to tawdry theatrics; to others she's the most effective and fearless women's rights attorney in America. In this intimate, warts-and-all documentary, one thing is certain: Allred's 40-year devotion to asserting, protecting, and expanding the rights of women is unwavering and her influence unassailable.

The Catcher Was a Spy 2017, U.S. Director: Ben Lewin Starring: Paul Rudd, Mark Strong, Sienna Miller, Jeff Daniels, Guy Pearce, Paul Giamatti

Sundance Summary In the midst of World War II, major league catcher Moe Berg (Paul Rudd) is drafted to join a new team: the Office of Security Services (the precursor to the CIA). No ordinary ballplayer, the erudite, Jewish Ivy League graduate speaks nine languages and is a regular guest on a popular TV quiz show. Despite his celebrity, Berg is an enigma – a closeted gay man with Whether fighting gender discrimination in toy stores, spousal abuse in a knack for keeping secrets. The novice spy is quickly trained and sent the O.J. trial, or sexual harassment by Donald Trump, every case is per- into the field to stop German scientist Werner Heisenberg before he can sonal and an opportunity to amplify the cause.

Rudd's sly performance At 75, like an unstoppable superhero with a rolling suitcase and no brings the charming, chameleonic catcher to life with the support of a time to lose, she crisscrosses the country arguing cases, marching for crackerjack cast, including Jeff Daniels and Guy Pearce as seasoned spies justice, and delivering impromptu speeches on the Lincoln Memorial and Paul Giamatti as a Dutch physicist.

The Death of Stalin 2017, France/U.K./Belgium Director: Armando Iannucci Starring: Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend, Olga Kurylenko, Jason Isaacs Sundance Summary Armando Iannucci, the creator of HBO's Veep, received an Academy Award nomination for writing 2009's In the Loop. His long-awaited follow-up, The Death of Stalin, premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, where its black humor delighted audiences and critics alike. Russia, 1953: The mood under Stalin's despotic regime is one of rampant paranoia. Spouses inform on one another, the secret police are always listening, and death squads roam the streets executing "traitors." One morning, the dictator is found comatose after a massive stroke, triggering an absurd, hysterical, and deadly power grab among his closest sycophants and confidants. Writer/director Iannucci brings his singularly hilarious misanthropy to this decidedly bleak setting, tackling real-world figures for the first time in his career. A murderer's row of great British and American actors, including Steve Buscemi, Andrea Riseborough, and a never-better Jason Isaacs, bring Stalin's inner circle of cronies and backstabbers to uproarious life. The Death of Stalin is a painfully relevant, pitch-black morality tale that shows what happens when too much power is concentrated in the hands of too few.

The Happy Prince 2017, Germany/Belgium/Italy Director: Rupert Everett Starring: Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Colin Morgan, Edwin Thomas, Rupert Everett Sundance Summary Rupert Everett writes, directs, and stars in his moving debut feature, detailing the final three years (1897–1900) in the life of Oscar Wilde. Rich in period detail and eschewing the familiar narrative of the writer's notorious trial and imprisonment on charges of indecency, this seldom-told story recounts Wilde's life following his release from incarceration – a period encompassing some of his most profound writing and most intimate experiences. Sequestered at a remote seaside hotel in France by faithful friends (played by Edwin Thomas and Colin Firth), a buoyant Wilde is soon restlessly traversing Europe under assumed names, beset by familiar, warring impulses: to reunite with his estranged wife (a radiant Emily Watson) or his former lover Sir Alfred "Bosie" Douglas (Colin Morgan), whose former provocations brought Wilde to ruin. Fading health, dwindling funds, and still more betrayals await Wilde, who relentlessly seeks love and creative outlets in whatever taverns and alleyways still welcome him. It's here that Everett particularly shines, evoking the spirit of the once-celebrated fallen genius who finds divine light even in the darkest corners of life.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post 2017, U.S. Director: Desiree Akhavan Starring: Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Forrest Goodluck, John Gallagher Jr., Jennifer Ehle Sundance Summary Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she's caught with another girl in the backseat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens "struggling with same-sex attraction." At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious "de-gaying" methods, and earnest Christian rock songs – but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she's able to find her place among fellow outcasts. Writer/director Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior) and co-writer Cecilia Frugiuele sensitively adapt Emily Danforth's acclaimed eponymous coming-of-age novel and create a refreshingly original teen movie. Balancing out inherent drama with understated humor, The Miseducation of Cameron Post looks at a teenage girl grappling with pain and loss, but at the same time, she is creating a family on her own terms and learning what it means to empower herself by having confidence in her own identity. The Tale 2017, U.S. Director: Jennifer Fox Starring: Laura Dern, Isabelle Nélisse, Jason Ritter, Elizabeth Debicki, Ellen Burstyn, Common Sundance Summary Jennifer, a globetrotting journalist and professor, lives an enviable life with her boyfriend in New York City. That is, until her mother finds a story Jennifer wrote at age 13 depicting a "special" relationship with two adult coaches. Reading the yellowed pages of "The Tale," Jennifer discovers the coded details she composed 40 years earlier are quite unlike her recollection. Deeply shaken yet determined to square her version of events with the truth, Jennifer sets out to find her two coaches. Returning to the Carolina horse farm where so much transpired, Jennifer's gangly yet tenacious seventh-grade self reawakens, and the loving stories she told herself for decades begin to unravel. Seamlessly toggling between past and present, writer/director Jennifer Fox forges a fresh and uncompromising cinematic language to penetrate the heightened internal worlds of her character at two pivotal stages. Shocking, emotionally raw, and destabilizing, this investigative thriller punctures the insidious workings of unchecked power and lays bare the mechanisms of memory – refashioned over time by a growing girl in order to not only survive, but to prevail. 18 WIREMAG.COM #02 2018


Three Identical Strangers 2017, U.S. Director: Tim Wardle Sundance Summary New York, 1980: Three complete strangers – Bobby Shafran, Eddy Galland, and David Kellman – make the astounding discovery that they are identical triplets. Separated at birth, adopted, and raised by three different families, the 19-year-olds are reunited by chance. Their story sets the tabloids on fire, and the triplets suddenly become famous around the world. The brothers forge a relationship and become fast friends. They move in together in a swinging bachelor pad and open a restaurant that skyrockets to success. The toast of Manhattan, the triplets are living the high life. But their fairy-tale reunion sets off a chain of events that ultimately unearths an extraordinary and sinister secret that could answer controversial questions at the heart of human behavior. Director Tim Wardle, teaming with production company Raw as well as CNN and Channel 4, has crafted a gripping, juicy conspiracy thriller that becomes so much more complex. Three Identical Strangers evolves from pulp nonfiction into a multi-layered deliberation on nature versus nurture and the existential dilemma of what makes us who we are.

Un Traductor 2017, Canada/Cuba Directors: Rodrigo Barriuso, Sebastián Barriuso Starring: Rodrigo Santoro, Maricel Álvarez, Yoandra Suárez Sundance Summary In 1989 Havana, Russian literature professor Malin gets a mysterious note at the university with orders from the government sending him to a local hospital, where he learns he is expected to act as translator between the Cuban doctors and the families of young patients from the Chernobyl disaster. Initially raging against his new role, Malin is forced to stay on, and he eventually becomes deeply devoted to his patients. But while he becomes "king of the kids" at the hospital, his relationships with his pregnant wife and young son suffer. Meanwhile, life around all of them shifts as the "Special Period" – the economic crisis in Cuba that followed the dissolution of the Soviet Union – begins. Rooted in the little-known true story of how twenty thousand Chernobyl victims were eventually treated in Cuba, Un Traductor immerses an emotional drama in crisply shot, beautifully realized period detail of Havana in 1989. Veteran actor Rodrigo Santoro brings dignity and charm to his performance as a good-hearted man in turmoil, and directors Rodrigo and Sebastián Barriuso, in their elegant feature debut, depict a tale at once historical and personal, all while demonstrating a truly impressive adeptness at their visual craft.

Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist 2017, U.K. Director: Lorna Tucker Sundance Summary Punk. Icon. Activist. The undisputed queen of fashion Dame Vivienne Westwood is known for her subversive and original take on British fashion. Told in her own words, Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist is a sharp-witted look into Westwood's creative process and her life's journey from 1970s punk protests to fierce independent global figure. Westwood sits alongside Gucci, Dior, and McQueen – but only Westwood still owns and runs her empire. Today she fights to maintain her brand's integrity and legacy as it expands to open flagship stores in fashion capitals Paris and New York in the face of global consumerism. Richly textured with spunk and charm, Lorna Tucker crafts a candid portrait including interviews from Westwood's inner circle of family and collaborators. At age 76, Westwood is still a controversial figure; in addition to confronting the establishment in fashion, she is fighting to save the environment with no signs of stopping.
