Join Oscar-nominated filmmaker R.J. Cutler (“The War Room”) Thursday evening at the Apple Store Soho as he discusses his new documentary “The September Issue.” Directed and produced by Cutler, the film tells the story of legendary Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and her larger-than-life team of editors creating the single largest issue of a magazine ever published. “The September Issue” won the Grand Jury Prize for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
The event is in anticipation of "September"'s theatrical release at the end of August. Cutler recently spoke to indieWIRE about the film's upcoming release, saying that he's “very eager to tap into the traditional documentary film audience,” but that the film also has a potentially wider audience. “Not just fans of fashion documentaries,” he said, “but people who have passion about fashion industry, and curiosity about Vogue and Anna Wintour.”
The film will open in New York on August 28th and expand in the New York area on September 4th. The following week, it will open in the top 15 markets.
But first join Cutler Thursday night at the Apple Store in a conversation moderated by indieWIRE's Eugene Hernandez:
WHEN: Thursday, July 30th, 5:00pm-6:00pm
